Gov. Ricketts to Host "Protect Our Kids & Schools" Town Halls in Columbus, Gothenburg, and Gering

 

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced that he will host “Protect Our Kids & Schools” town halls in Columbus, Gothenburg, and Gering.  At the town halls, Governor Ricketts will discuss major priorities for the state’s schools, including the proposed health education standards and controversial sex education topics contained in them.

 

At the town halls, Gov. Ricketts and others will deliver remarks about the draft sex education standards, and how Nebraskans can encourage the Nebraska Department of Education to scrap them. 

 

More information about Governor Ricketts’ opposition to the controversial sex education proposal can be found at www.Governor.Nebraska.gov.
