Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson’s Statement on the Parents’ Bill of Rights

Raleigh, NC
Feb 1, 2023

Yesterday the North Carolina State Senate filed Senate Bill 49, also known as the "Parents' Bill of Rights." This bill is the first step to ensure that North Carolina parents can be in charge of their children’s educational destiny.

Lt. Governor Mark Robinson had this to say on the recently filed bill. "Over the last few years, parents have been given an inside look into their children’s classroom, voiced their concerns, and have felt ignored by bureaucrats.

Now is the time for us to step up and ensure their voices are heard, and this bill does exactly that. When my office created the F.A.C.T.S. Taskforce, it was to help empower teachers, students, and parents to share their concerns without the fear of persecution. Many on the left claimed that this was a "Fox News" driven issue, but in reality, it is a parent-driven issue. Parents have led the way, and it is time we have their backs."
