Advocates of parental rights concerned about government overreach when it comes to their children’s development were relieved that the feds are not moving forward with its power grab to gain more control of children in America.

“[T]wo federal agencies removed dangerous language from proposed regulations that would have treated governments and schools as ‘equal partners’ with parents,” the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) announced.

The outcry began after the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a draft education policy statement last December declaring governments to be “equal partners” with parents when it comes to decisions about the educational, physical and emotional development of America’s youth.

Not taking the declaration lightly, HSLDA attorneys made it clear that the government was overstepping its bounds.

“[We] condemned this attempt to weaken the critical and God-given importance of parents and increase the power of the government,” HSLDA Federal Relations Legislative Assistant Lauren Mitchell reports.
