Letters from the American statesman Austin to the editor: January 8, 2023

Legislation sounds great

but then he “gives up the game”

Re: January 3 article “School bills aim to expand parental control.”

“Rep. Tom Oliverson, R-Cypress, has submitted House Bill 338, which establishes a rating system for books used in schools and restricts books labeled more mature from the lower grades,” the article reads.

Sounds ok, right? But then Oliverson gives out the game: “The most egregious thing about this is that some teachers think they know better than parents,” Oliverson said.

Right. If dad says that two plus two equals 37, what right does the teacher have to correct him?

Stephen Medlock, Austin
