An Open Letter

To: Rep. Gutierrez, Rep. Mathis

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

June 8

The proposed legislation, Arizona SB1005, aims to prohibit the use of public funds for "ideology training" in schools and other government entities. While upholding certain principles is understandable, this bill raises concerns about potential overreach that could inadvertently restrict legitimate educational content and discussions related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and diverse perspectives. A balanced approach is needed to ensure students receive comprehensive education without promoting discriminatory ideologies, while also protecting intellectual freedom and access to factual information about different identities and experiences. I urge you to carefully examine the implications of this bill to safeguard educational integrity and avoid curtailing critical learning opportunities that foster understanding and inclusivity.
