Lazich applauds Senate approval of Strong Communities/Health Kids Act
Wednesday night, the Senate approved Senate Bill 237, the Strong Communities/Healthy Kids Act, with a 17-15 vote. State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) authored the legislation to return human growth and development curriculum decisions to local school boards.
Senate Bill 237 removes state government mandates and allows each school board to design and implement human growth and development curriculum.
“The Strong Communities/Healthy Kids Act is another win for proponents of local control,” Lazich said. “This takes the emphasis of human growth and development away from special interests and government mandates, and places it on ensuring students receive the necessary education to become healthy and productive members of society.”
