Governor Tate Reeves has called for Mississippi to establish a “Parents’ Bill of Rights” that will grant parental authority over that of the state in terms of a child’s education.

In a statement released on social media, Reeves claimed that schools across the country have undermined the will of parents by pushing social agendas on children — something the governor says he will refuse to allow in the Magnolia State.

“In Mississippi, we believe it is the parents who have the final say in their child’s education, not the state,” Reeves wrote in a statement. “Too many school districts across the country have usurped the role of parents and decreed that they will impose new, controversial experimental social science experiments on children over the objections of parents. On decisions surrounding the usage of names, pronouns, or health matters, schools have an obligation to adhere to the will of the parents.”

The governor added that schools serve a purpose to teach fundamental courses such as math, science, reading, civics, and writing, not to affirm ideologies that may be contrary to what a child is taught at home.
