Sign the petition and help protect Maryland children from the impacts of screens in schools
Maryland lawmakers are considering groundbreaking legislation to protect children from the known health risks of digital devices used in schools. Please sign our petition and ask legislators to support this bill!
Dear Chairwoman Kaiser and Delegate Luedtke,
I am a Maryland resident, and I urge you to vote in favor of HB1110, "Public Schools – Health and Safety Guidelines and Procedures – Digital Devices."
I am very concerned about the health risks children face as a result of required digital device use in their public school curriculum. Research tells us it isn't healthy for kids to be glued to screens all day, even for educational purposes. Excessive screen time is linked to attention and hyperactivity disorders, social-emotional problems, sleep disturbances, and irregular sleep patterns.
When we send our kids to school, we should be confident that they will be protected in their classrooms, not put at risk. This bill will allow parents, educators, and health professionals to develop guidelines for device use that will protect children’s health.
Please pass HB1110.
Thank you for signing the petition, and urging Maryland lawmakers to develop guidelines for device use in schools that will protect children’s health. Stay tuned for updates on whether this bill will become a law.
Will you please take a moment to help spread the word?
