MILWAUKEE, WI (IRN) – In a show of commitment to parental rights and involvement in education, Florida US Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) signed the Moms for Liberty “Parent Pledge” during his visit to Milwaukee yesterday. The signing comes just days before a highly anticipated debate, showcasing Scott’s dedication to advocating for parents and children on both local and national platforms.

The Moms for Liberty organization, known for its resolute stance on parental rights, expressed their satisfaction with Senator Scott’s endorsement of the Parent Pledge. This pledge reaffirms the fundamental rights of parents, particularly in matters concerning their children’s education, medical care, and ethical upbringing. By signing the pledge, Senator Scott commits to advancing policies that bolster parental engagement and decision-making, promote transparency, safeguard against governmental overreach, and firmly establish parental rights across all tiers of government.

Co-Founders of Moms for Liberty, Tiffany Justice (R-Vero Beach) and Tina Descovich (R-Indialantic), lauded Senator Scott’s unwavering dedication to parental rights within the realm of education. They commended his track record, highlighting his pivotal role during his tenure as governor in implementing comprehensive school safety measures following the tragic Parkland school shooting massacre. Having transitioned to federal service as a US Senator, Scott continues to champion school safety enhancements on a national level. By endorsing the Parent Pledge, he affirms his unwavering support for parents’ rights to guide their children’s education and future.

In an official statement, Senator Rick Scott expressed his pride in signing the Parent Pledge and hailed Moms for Liberty for their tireless advocacy on behalf of children. He asserted that parents, rather than government entities, should hold the authority to make decisions regarding their child’s education. In a nod to recent debates surrounding education curricula, Senator Scott criticized what he termed as “woke nonsense” and emphasized his commitment to defending parental rights and the well-being of children.
