A California Parents Are Authorities Over Child's Educational Curricula Act (09-0047) did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot in California as an initiated constitutional amendment.

On October 1, 2009, Lee W. Olson filed a request with the Office of the California Attorney General for an official ballot title on an act that he was calling the "California Parental Protection Act of 2010."

The attorney general's office provided that title, so the measure was cleared for circulation with a circulation deadline of April 23, 2010.

If this measure had succeeded, it would have added a new Section 18 to Article IX of the California Constitution, which would have read:

(a) This Act shall be known as the "California Parental Protection Act of

2010.

(b) Notwithstanding any provision of the Constitution to the contrary, the parents or legal guardian shall have the sole authority and responsibility to establish the educational curriculum of their child or ward and this authority and responsibility shall not be usurped by any local, State, or higher level governmental entity.
