We now have an update to our article in the fall, Case for the Wisconsin Supreme Court: Should parents be notified about their secretly trans-identifying students? The Supreme Court agreed to hear the case and will now rule on two issues: 1) the degree to which the plaintiffs can be anonymous, and 2) whether the current policy of parents not being notified should be continued during the lengthy court process.
As described by the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL):
WILL Deputy Counsel, Luke Berg, said, “We are pleased the Wisconsin Supreme Court has agreed to hear this important case. The Madison Metropolitan School District cannot make decisions reserved for parents.”
ADF counsel Kate Anderson, Director of ADF’s Center for Parental Rights, added, “School policies that exclude parents from children’s gender identity decisions are harming children across the country. We are hopeful that the Wisconsin Supreme Court will take the lead in protecting a parent’s right to be a parent.”
