Help Bring the Eyes on the Board Act to the Floor
Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) believes that children should spend their time in school learning, not scrolling through disruptive and dangerous content on social media without parental supervision. Yet the FCC is attempting to expand social media access by funding wifi on school buses. That is why we are proud to support Senator Cruz's Eyes on the Board Act.

S.3074  would prohibit schools or school districts from receiving E-Rate or Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) subsidies unless they prohibit access to social media on subsidized services, devices, and networks, facilities. It would also require schools to adopt a screen time policy, limiting the amount of time kids spend on their devices while in the classroom.

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee CEO and President Penny Nance endorsed the bill, saying:

“Kids are sent to school to learn, not to spend hours on social media. Parents deserve complete transparency from schools about what is going on in the classrooms, especially when it comes to screen time. Parents should not have to worry about what their children are viewing on social media sites on government-subsidized electronic devices. The Eyes on the Board Act is a commonsense measure to keep the focus of education where it should be, on educating children.”

Call your Senators and ask them to support Sen. Cruz's Eyes on the Board Act.
