Democrat Governor of Pennsylvania Tom Wolf vetoed legislation that would require public school districts to publicize information on various textbooks, lesson plans, and academic standards. The legislation was pushed to promote transparency between educators and students’ parents.
Governor Wolf released a statement that explained his reasoning for the veto on House Bill 1332: “This legislation is a thinly veiled attempt to restrict truthful instruction and censor content reflecting various cultures, identities, and experiences. My administration is committed to creating a safe learning environment for all students, and we will not take part in this dangerous and harmful imposition.”
The bill would amend the Pennsylvania Public School Code of 1949 and passed through easily in both chambers of the PA State Legislature, with bi-partisan support.
If passed, PA schools would be required to list all titles of textbooks and summaries of the textbooks online, so parents could easily understand what their children were being taught.
The Sun-Gazette, a local media outlet, supported the legislation, saying it “would help dispel fears and rumors about what our local school districts’ curricula include. We are confident that greater transparency would equip community members to contribute in school board meetings in a more constructive way.”
