HB958 is an attempt to silence and intimidate education professionals. This legislation prohibits all political activity during school hours, including sporting events and other extracurricular activities at elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, community colleges and institutions of higher learning. It even prohibits these professionals discussing issues with their elected representatives, whether or not those issues are related to a political campaign. We oppose this bill because the highlighted overreach is a restriction of the First Amendment.
