HARRISBURG – Lancaster County Sen. Ryan Aument reintroduced Senate Bill 7 to make parents aware of the mature content their child may be provided in school and give them the ability to deny their children access to such content. Senate Bill 7 would require schools to identify sexual explicit content in school curriculum, materials, and books. It also would create an opt-in policy that would: notify parents of the sexually explicit content by including a list of the book titles; give parents the opportunity to review the materials; and require parents to give direct consent for their children to be provided or have access to sexually explicit content. Children would be provided with non-explicit alternatives if their parents do not opt-in. The bill would not ban any books from any PA school curriculum or library. Aument said we must work together to find a bipartisan solution that honors parents, considers impacts to teachers and schools, and protects children from all backgrounds.
