School bill would let AZ parents police kids\’ lessons

State lawmakers gave final approval Tuesday to legislation allowing parents to pull their kids out of classes and lessons they find “harmful.”
“Harmful” is broadly defined as sexual, violent, profane or vulgar content – a standard one lawmaker said would lead to parents censoring what their youngsters learn.
SB 1453, which now goes to Gov. Jan Brewer, is designed to expand on an existing “Parents’ Bill of Rights” which includes the power of parents to direct the education of their child. State law also protects those rights from government infringement unless there is a “compelling governmental interest.”
