Bill requiring curricula postings makes its way through the AZ House

Published: Tuesday, March 29, 2022 - 1:01pm

bill that would require schools to make curricula materials available to parents ahead of time, has passed an Arizona House committee on a party-line vote

Proponents say this is about transparency and parental empowerment. Opponents like Jay Kaprosy, a lobbyist for the Arizona Charter Schools Association, say this bill overcorrects for an uncommon issue. 

“The way that this bill is structured does place a very significant burden on schools. And in many ways the vast majority of schools are being penalized for the unfortunate acts and the inappropriate acts of a very limited number of schools," Kaprosy said. 

The bill has already passed the Senate. And now awaits discussion in the House Rules committee, the last stop before a full vote.
