Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not be a resource for instruction or services in the school.

Strongly Agree   


Economy

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Agree   

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree   

School districts should be able to use taxpayer money for lobbying the state legislature.

Neutral   


Religious Liberty

School districts should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree   

At school, students should be able to speak freely and civilly about matters of conscience and faith, including Christianity.

Strongly Agree   

Students should not be allowed to pray in school.

Strongly Agree   


Education

What is the function of the local school board?

1. Set tax rate 2. Hire/fire a superintendent 3. Set policy

Who should have the authority to set curriculum and determine resources used in those curricula?

This should come from the state level.

Please list in order the following priorities in relation to the role of a K-12 public school (omitting any that do not apply): Mathematics, Information Technology, Science, Political Activism, Personal Finances, Gender Identity, Physical Fitness, American History, Critical Race Theory, Language Arts, Art & Music, Vocational Learning, Sexuality, Foreign Language, Social Emotional Learning

Social emotional learning Language Arts Mathematics Science American History Arts and music Information technology Foreign language Physical fitness Personal finances

Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Agree   

Schools should use Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum and resources to teach emotions, values, and relationships.

Strongly Agree   

I support the teaching of the 1619 Project emphasizing slavery and racism as the foundation of American history.

Strongly Disagree   

When students are taught courses such as Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE) or Social Emotional Learning (SEL), they must opt-in with written parental permission.

Strongly Agree   

Parents are the ultimate authority in their child’s education and should be able to freely pursue whatever educational options they deem best for their child.

Strongly Agree   


Values

No school official should be involved in the sexual transitioning of a student. All issues on this subject should be referred to the parents of the student.

Strongly Agree   

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality that is necessary for our system of limited government.

Agree   

Teachers should not use alternative names and pronouns without parental permission.

Strongly Agree   

Therapy to help children turn from unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria should be banned.

Strongly Disagree   

I support allowing students to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms, and to participate in athletic competition based on the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex.

Strongly Disagree   

No healthcare diagnosis or treatment, whether mental, reproductive, or otherwise, should be given to a child without first receiving written consent from the parent.

Strongly Agree   

Who is responsible for teaching sexual education to children, and what is the appropriate age when it should be taught?

I feel this should be taught at home by the parent. The parent will get to choose the age.

If you support the teaching of Sex Ed, please answer the following question: Sexual education should include these topics (list all that apply and add your own, if needed) -- Physical and emotional health outcomes; contraceptive methods; consent; abstinence; sexual orientation and gender identity; human anatomy/the reproductive system; abortion methods and side effects; stages of pregnancy and fetal development; sex acts and pleasures of sex

My lord and savior Jesus Christ is my all. Everything I have, I had, and will have is because of Jesus
