Parents'-rights organizations across Connecticut, including homeschoolers, contend they would be treated unfairly by some public-policy recommendations prompted by the 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Believing the rights of parents are at risk, the groups have formed the Parental Rights Coalition.

Members are opposed to legislative proposals they deem to be an infringement, such as mandatory mental-health screenings of schoolchildren. They're also concerned about a recommendation in the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission's recent draft report that references individualized education programs, or IEPs, for home-schooled children.
