(Bismarck, ND) — Lawmakers are considering a bill that would cement parents’ rights into North Dakota law. The bill would guarantee a parent’s right to have primary control over their child’s care, supervision, upbringing, and education. Supporters say the measure protects the fundamental rights of parents to keep their children from being exposed to materials they aren’t developmentally ready for. Opponents say educators will have difficulty determining which materials might violate a particular parent’s rights. A similar bill would entitle parents to compensation if they win a lawsuit against a government agency concerning their children.
