The proposed constitutional amendments read as follows:

California Parental Rights Act of 2018

Section 17 is added to Article IX of the California Constitution, to read:


(a) This Act shall be known as the "California Parental Rights Act of 2018."

(b) Notwithstanding any provision of the Constitution to the contrary, the parents, or legal guardian, shall have the inviolable right of sole authority and responsibility to "train up their child, or ward, in the way the child should go" including, but not limited to, the venue, the curriculum and the methods and this authority and responsibility shall not be usurped by any local, county, State or other State sanctioned governmental entity.

This constitutional initiative amendment restores the natural order of societal organization wherein the family is the foundational building block.  Parents have been given the responsibility to "train up their child, or ward, in the way the child should go."  This is not a government responsibility.  Especially when there is an abundance of evidence that governments do not have the best interests of the governed at heart.

Over the years governments have usurped this responsibility at gunpoint.  Society has accepted this usurpation based upon the mistaken view that governments always know what’s best for society, act more responsibility than the average citizen and always act in the best interests of the governed.  I hope that statement didn’t cause those of you not on the blue pill to puke.

CA Democrats, with the help of some Republicans, have been, and continue, making war on the nuclear family, the foundation of a sound, stable society.  They’ve been undermining the moral foundations of society by promoting immoral behaviors and junk science.  They have turned the educational process from one of producing outstanding, independent, freedom loving, academically skilled citizens capable of rational, independent thinking into on one of delivering government propaganda for the purpose of producing compliant, dumb downed, unskilled zombies with severe cases of Arrested Emotional Development (AED).  It’s so bad that Universities and Colleges now have to provide safe spaces for students equipped with crayons, coloring books and Teddy Bears.  It’s pathetic.  How can anyone claim that governments have the best interests of their citizens as a top priority?

This initiative will raise the ire of government bureaucrats and their sycophant citizen groupies.  For example, here’s the Democrat Attorney General’s title and summary of the chief purpose and points of the proposed measure:

“PROHIBITS GOVERNMENT FROM ENFORCING EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS AND MAKES PARENTS AND GUARDIANS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Changes Constitution to prohibit state and local government from requiring parents and guardians to meet educational standards. Gives parents and legal guardians the sole authority and responsibility to educate their children, including the right to determine the venue, curriculum, and methods of education.”     

Although it may not be the case, it appears that the AG is implying that under the initiative, parents will not have to meet educational standards.  Presumably that means government imposed standards, which the AG seems to suggest are just fine.  But, what is the worth of government standards that produce students having subpar academic skills ranking 35th compared students educated in other nations?  This doesn’t even take into account the production of significant numbers of students with AED who are, therefore, unprepared for real life events.  How can students with AED make any worthwhile contribution to society?

On the contrary, to the AGs assertion, this initiative will empower parents to implement significantly higher standards of academic excellence than guide government schools.  They will not be forced implement the lower government imposed educational standards.  In addition, parents will not be forced to indoctrinate their children in the politically correct thinking and propaganda delivered by government schools (that, in fact, is the main purpose of government schools).  They can raise their children to be morally upright and to have the honed abilities to reason logically and separate fact from fiction in regard to pseudoscience versus objective science.

This initiative is the antidote to the current management structure of government schools whereby elected school boards supposedly implement the will of parents.  Everyone should recognize what a farce that is.  The educational establishment makes sure that only those who fully support the dumbed down standards of government schools and their delivery of government propaganda are elected.  This initiative gives parents the ultimate say, not lackey school board members.

If you are a parent with school aged children or a citizen frustrated with government schools you’re forced to pay for at gunpoint, then you’re likely excited at this point.  If so, please click on the "Donate" button in the side bar and make a generous donation to enabling gathering of the required number of petition signatures to qualify this initiative for the November General Election ballot.  Also, please notify others of this initiative and ask them to notify their acquaintances as well, even those who live outside CA may make donations.  Between private and home schooling parents and those who are fed up with government schools there are several million CA residents.  Donations from just a faction of this population will more than cover the costs of petition signature gathering.  Please spread the word.  If everyone takes immediate, persistent action, we can together defeat the Governor and the Legislature.

Please download and read the petition which has the CA Attorney General’s title and summary of the chief purpose and points of the proposed measure as well as the summary of estimate by the Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of the fiscal impact on state and local government.  You may sign it personally or also collect additional signatures and mail it to the CTES per the petition instructions.

Thank you for whatever financial, or other, support you can provide.  Please contact the CTES if you have any questions.
