|1. Providing state tax credits and education savings accounts to enable parents to choose what school their child attends.
|State tax credits and savings accounts will not benefit underfunded schools and are not a solution to providing an equitable education to all students in Pennsylvania.
|2. Reserving girls’ sports exclusively for biological females.
|All students and athletes should be treated with respect and not required to “prove” their identity to anyone, beyond submitting the required paperwork for school registration.
|3. Separating restrooms, locker rooms, and other privacy areas based on biological sex.
|See comment to question #2.
|4. Permitting students to discuss their Christian faith with others during non-class time on school premises.

|5. Allowing school personnel to refer students to abortion providers.
|Healthcare is a fundamental right.
|6. Requiring signed permission (opt-in) from a parent before a student may participate in sex education classes or presentations on gender identity theory.
|Allowing students access to all approved curriculum promotes a safe and inclusive learning environment, and there can be a provision for opting out.
|7. Increasing transparency by requiring videos or documents shown to students [which are not part of pre-approved curriculum] be preserved for easy review by administrator and parents
|Educators should be trusted to share materials that promote learning in a responsible manner without excessive oversight.
|8. Providing curricula that advocates critical race theory and its emphasis on defining people as oppressors or oppressed based on group identity or privileges.
|CRT itself is not considered K-12 material, but the social implications of race and intersectionality are in-scope for educating on harmful structures, policies, and practices.
|9. Requiring teachers to use "she" to describe a biological male student who identifies as a female, even if the teacher offered a reasonable alternative.
|Support if the student requested "she". Students should be treated with respect and addressed using the pronouns that they prefer.
|10. Specifying in school policy that materials containing visual depictions of people engaging in sex acts or explicit written descriptions of people engaging in sex acts is not age-appropriate for the school’s curriculum and libraries.
|There is an age-appropriate place for sexual content in school curriculum and libraries to support healthy sexual development and responsible behavior.
