Senate Bill 524

Dave is off this week, but on this special extended episode Phil and special guest Tina discuss the importance of stopping California Senate Bill 524.

The purpose of SB-524 is to force Christian residential boarding schools, such as Teen Rescue, to be under the jurisdiction of Community Care Licensing rather than the Department of Education. If this bill were to pass, schools like Teen Rescue would no longer be allowed to use Christian curriculum or teach exclusively Christian values.

This is not only a violation of religious freedom, it is also a violation of the rights of parents to choose the values that their children are taught. This bill is the first step toward restricting the curriculum and values taught in traditional private Christian schools.

The most effective way of stopping this bill from passing is to write your senator and assemblyman and let them know that you are against Senate Bill 524.
