Senate Bill 656

I support these policies in order to protect children from inappropriate sexual content at school and to respect parents’ right to determine whether their children are exposed to this content. 

Parents have a fundamental right to make these decisions, and they are also in the best position to know what is appropriate for their children.

Under Virginia law, parents have the fundamental right to make decisions about the education of their children.
