Christian teachers file lawsuit against Newsom, say they were forced to lie to parents about kids’ gender
Two Christian teachers have added California Democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta to a lawsuit that claims they were forced to lie to parents about students confused about their gender.
An amended lawsuit filed on January 29 by attorneys for Rincon Middle School teachers Elizabeth Mirabelli and Lori Ann West alleges that the educators had their First Amendment rights violated by policies related to the treatment of transgender and gender diverse K-8 students.
The lawsuit claims that the Escondido Union School District (EUSD) policies forced teachers to aid in students’ “social transition” by using pronouns and gender-specific names requested by the students during school hours. The teachers were allegedly told to revert to the students’ biological pronouns and legal names when speaking with parents “in order to actively hide information about their child’s gender identity.”
“According to EUSD’s policies, all elementary and middle school teachers must unhesitatingly accept a child’s assertion of a transgender or gender diverse identity and must ‘begin to treat the student immediately’ according to their asserted gender identity. There’s no requirement for parent or caretaker agreement or even for knowledge,” the lawsuit states.
Attorneys for the plaintiffs claim that if a concerned parent asks a teacher whether their child has socially transitioned, the teacher must respond by saying, “the inquiry is outside of the scope of the intent of their interaction’ and they are only permitted to discuss “information regarding the student’s behavior as it relates to school, class rules assignments, etc.”
If a parent discovers that their child has socially transitioned, EUSD policies “flatly prohibit teachers from respecting parents’ wishes” and parents are not allowed to override a student’s request, the plaintiffs claim.
The lawsuit further notes that EUSD policies are based on a model and guidance promoted by the California Department of Education.
