SB 386 is a classroom censorship bill introduced as part of a nationwide effort to limit how students can learn and talk about race and sex discrimination in public schools. This bill prohibits public schools from promoting certain concepts related to an individual's age, sex, gender identity, race, religion, color, national origin, etc. as part of educational curriculum. It also prohibits teachers from using supplemental materials to promote these concepts.  

The bill would require school corporations to create a grievance procedure for parents who have complaints that provisions of this bill weren’t followed. This procedure and a complaint form would need to be posted on the school corporation’s website. If the parent or student is unhappy with the results of the procedure, they may appeal it to the secretary of education. 

Bills such as this prevent teachers from doing their job and rob young people of an inclusive education and a healthy school environment.
