Earlier than the vote, Republican state Rep. Robert Wittke of Racine applauded the measure. “This invoice is about letting mother and father have a say in what course they need their little one to have an training. Whether or not it’s by their very own private beliefs, spiritual beliefs or no matter,” he stated.

Fellow Republican Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt of Fond du Lac added this sentiment: “If you’re going to speak about delicate topics with kids that may be a legitimate factor that folks have to learn about.”

However Democratic Rep. Sondy Pope of Mount Horeb, who sits on the Meeting training committee, objected and was within the minority voting in opposition to the invoice. “I might say loads about this invoice, however I’m simply going to say I’m voting no as a result of I’m uninterested in this committee selling intolerance and disrespect for college kids at school,” Horeb stated.

If the Republican-led Legislature passes the invoice, it might head to Democratic Gov. Tony Evers. His workplace has stated he’ll veto it.

The measure is a component of a bigger slate of Republican payments meant to offer mother and father extra management over public training.
