Dear Representative,

Please vote NO on HB164. It is a direct assault on parental rights that have been heretofore protected by our state legislature. Further, it entrenches and places undue importance on tests that have yet to be professionally validated.

You represent every parent in this state as you sit on the education committee besides your own constituency. Please be sensitive to the rights of parents; Superintendent Smith has clearly stated parents have the right to opt their children out of anything 
they feel is inappropriate for them. That is correct, as public education is funded by those parents. This bill seriously affects that right negatively.
