Rep. Sheffield's HB 2249 would require YOUR child's campus to report on the number of children enrolled with exemption affidavits. Not only that, but this campus report would be posted on the state's website for all the world to see!
Rep. Sheffield asserts that this report would somehow help protect medically fragile children, but by reporting exemption rates ONLY, this report ignores many other factors that actually reflect the health of a campus. This report would incite a witch hunt, pitting families against each other, as the identities of children using exemptions are deduced or even just implied.
This bill does NOTHING to advance or protect public health. It is an invasion of medical privacy plain and simple and would create hostile school environments for our children.
