The Democrat Governor of Pennsylvania vetoed a law that would require school districts to post information regarding textbooks, class content and academic standards online, shooting down the effort to provide transparency to parents regarding their children’s schools.
Governor Tom Wolf vetoed the legislation a week ago, before Christmas. A statement from the progressive made it all but clear he intended to enshrine the teaching of anti-white critical race theory in schools, a divisive phenomenon the Republican-controlled state legislature had sought to clamp down on with House Bill 1332.
“This legislation is a thinly veiled attempt to restrict truthful instruction and censor content reflecting various cultures, identities, and experiences,” Wolf said in a veto message. “My administration is committed to creating a safe learning environment for all students, and we will not take part in this dangerous and harmful imposition.” The law passed both chambers in Pennsylvania’s state legislature on near-unanimous party lines, with Republicans in support and Democrats opposed.
The law would’ve amended Pennsylvania’s Public School Code of 1949. If enacted, schools would be required to document the titles of textbooks children are instructed in in a website accessible to parents, in addition to providing a summary of the content.
Progressive Democrats have increasingly sought to remove parents from input on the content their children are taught in public schools, with failed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAulife arguing that community members have no right to object to the instruction of anti-white racism in public schools.
