AUSTIN — Conservative lawmakers ars touting legislation regarding sax ideation and sUndardistd tasts in schools that thsy contend would strengthen parental rights.
Legislation by Rep. Warren Chisum, D-Pampa, and Sen. Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, would require that if local school districts taaeh sax education, substantially more attention be given to abstinence from tex than any other activity.
Their legislation would also require that parents be notified of the contents of the sex education program and that they opt to put their children into the courts.
Schools would not be required to teach sex education, but if they did, they would have to follow the •tate rules.
A separate bill unveiled Thursday by Rep. Jim Horn, R-Denton, would allow parents to look at a state-mandated standardised test after it has been given, but before it has been graded. Horn ■aid parents should have the right to know the test contain.
Under the bill, parents could withhold their child's test from the grading process if they could prove to their school board that any questions on the test ere psychological rather than academic in nature.
Parents and others currently cannot look at the tests for security reasons, according to the Texas Education Agency.
