Barry Moore on Education

 

 


Protect religious expression by students in school

HB1: Student Religious Liberties Act: This bill would prohibit school districts from discriminating against a student or parent on the basis of a religious viewpoint or religious expression in public schools. This bill would require school districts to allow religious expression in class assignments and artwork, and provide students with the freedom to organize religious groups and activities.

Birmingham News analysis: [Proponents say the bill] ensures students maintain their constitutional rights, mentioning a Tennessee student who was kicked out of school for saying "bless you" after someone sneezed. [Opponents] questioned the need for the bill, saying the First Amendment already gives students this freedom.

Legislative Outcome: Passed House 80-11-14, Roll #60 on Mar/11/2015; State Rep. Barry Moore voted YES; Passed Senate 25-0-9, Roll #792 on May/5/2015; Signed by Gov. Bentley on May/7/2015.

Allow tax credits for parents for private schools

HB84: Alabama Accountability Bill: On tax credits for families with students in failing schools to attend another public or private school and for scholarship donations

NPR analysis: Gov. Robert Bentley has signed a bill that gives tax credits to parents who want to transfer their children from a failing public school to another public or private school. Democrats and teachers' groups say the bill underwent massive changes, including allowing schools to choose which students they will accept. "This is very important to very successful school systems," [one pro-school-choice advocate] says, "especially systems around Birmingham, that don't necessarily want to see a flood of students pouring over their borders and into their school system."

Legislative Outcome: Passed House 51-26-26 on 2/28/2013; State Rep. Barry Moore voted YES; Passed Senate 22-11-1 on 3/1/2013; Signed by Governor Robert Bentley on Mar/14/2013

Strongly anti-free college, according to AFA survey.

Moore opposes the AFA survey question on free college

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
