Education is not a “one-size-fits-all.” Parents should have the right to select the education option that is best for their children, whether that be: private school, public school, homeschooling, or a mix thereof. The government cannot understand the needs of a child at the same depth as a parent, therefore parents should be at the forefront of a child’s education, not the government.
Schools and teachers should seek to include, rather than exclude, parents. Public education over the years has taken on a larger role than simply equipping children with the knowledge of basic academics, instead it has evolved into tackling social issues eluding that teachers and school officials understand the social and emotional needs of a child better than the parent.
Parents need to regain their role in their child’s education and Nevada Family Alliance wants to help.
SB 225 – Bullying Private Schools
Under the guise of creating a “safe and respectful learning environment” SB 225 would require all private schools, including religious schools, to adopt anti-bullying policies and practices, provide instruction to staff and students, and communicate messages that conflict with the schools’ beliefs regarding human sexuality or the immutability of biological sex.
For example, a religious school could be found in violation of SB 225 if it:
- Maintained separate showers, locker rooms, and restrooms based on biological sex;
- Implemented a dress code that required students to dress consistent with their biological sex;or
- Held a chapel service where Biblical teachings regarding humans sexuality and the belief that marriage is between a man and woman are taught to the students.
This bill clearly infringes on the right of religious schools to speak and act consistent with their religious beliefs.

Please contact the Senate Education Committee members and urge them to oppose SB 225.

AB 348- Expanding Sexual Education Mandates
Sex education used to begin in fourth or fifth grades, but now the state wants to expand it to all grades, introducing content to younger students that may not be age-appropriate.
If AB 348 passes, this statewide mandate will force all schools to:
- promote abortion
- inform students on where to obtain contraceptives without parental knowledge
- promote dangerous sexual experimentation
- promote gender fluidity – which teaches that feelings are more valid than facts.
- promote different sexual orientations and that all lifestyles are as equally valid and acceptable as others. Even though some of these lifestyles conflict with student beliefs, students will be bullied into celebrating these lifestyle choices.
