INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Senate will not consider contentious legislation that supporters say would have increased parental control over what their kids learn. Teachers and other critics say the measure would have amounted to censorship.
Members of the Republican-led Legislature worked on the bill this week, “but have determined there is no path forward for it and it will not be considered,” according to a report from the Associated Press quoting Republican Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray.
The legislation would have required all school curricula to be posted online for parental review and would have banned schools’ ability to teach certain concepts.
The House is slated to consider a similar bill next week that would require classroom materials to be posted online and vetted by parent review committees, as well as place restrictions on teaching about racism and political topics.
