U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Holland, wants to amend the Constitution to protect "the liberties of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children."
His proposal has 137 co-sponsors in the House. Hoekstra spoke at a press conference Friday with state Rep. Dave Agema, state Sen. Bill Hardiman and president of parentalrights.org and Patrick Henry College Chancellor Michael Farris.
Hoekstra wants the amendment to keep "parental rights" within families without government intervention.
What does Hoekstra's actions mean?
Are states clamping down on homeschoolers? Are courts overreaching in how parents raise their children?
Has anybody heard of this proposed amendment before? Is it gaining support?
