INDIANA (WEHT) – House Bill 1134 (HB 1134) is a controversial education bill within the state of Indiana.

HB 1134 is a bill that allows parents to opt out their kids when it comes to certain topics in the classroom, as well as makes it where parents are on a majority of the curricular materials advisory committee, with teachers only on a minor part of the committee. Majority rules, so parents will have much say in what their kids can or cannot learn. Parents will be able to look at lesson plans and pick and choose what their kids will be learning. Arguments for the bill state that this bill could help in removing critical race theory from schools.

The bill passed with a 60-37 vote. To find your representative, please use this website. Here is a list of House representatives who were either voted for or against HB 1134, according to the Indiana General Assembly’s website:
