Parental Bill of Rights passes Assembly | By Rep. Rick Gundrum (R-Slinger)

January 19, 2024 – Madison, WI – Representative Rick Gundrum (R-Slinger) voted for Assembly Bill 510 this month, relating to rights reserved to a parent or guardian of a child. After passage of the bill, he released the following statement:


“Parents deserve a seat at the table when it comes to the education of their children. There have been too many incidents where school boards and administration seem to be working against parents rather than working with them. This legislation ensures parents have rights when it comes to knowing about their child’s education and health care. When parents are involved, there is no doubt that their children will be more successful. I am proud to vote for this bill, I hope it is passed by the Senate, and I hope Governor Evers signs it into law.”


Among the parental rights included in Assembly Bill 510 are:

The right to determine the type of school or educational setting the child attends.
The right to determine the names and pronouns used for the child while at school.
The right to access records regarding the education of the child that are generated, maintained, or used by the child’s school, to the extent required by federal law.
The right to engage with locally elected school board members of the school district in which the child is a student in accordance with school district policy, including by participating in regularly-scheduled school board meetings.

The right to be timely informed of any acts of violence or crimes occurring on grounds of the child’s school.
