A group of parents sued a Wisconsin school district on Wednesday over a policy that allows students to change their names and gender pronoun preference without their parents’ consent while they’re at school.
One student’s parents said they had their daughter removed from the Kettle Moraine School District to “protect her mental health and preserve their parental role” after the student asked to be called a different name and go by male pronouns at school, according to WFRV-TV in Green Bay.
The parents claimed the school had violated their constitutional rights because parents have an “inherent right” to be the primary decision-makers in their children’s lives.
Another student’s parents said they joined the lawsuit so the same thing couldn’t happen to their child, WFRV reported.
The lawsuit was filed by the Wisconsin Institute
