California Senate Passes Bill Prohibiting Schools from Informing Parents of Child’s Pronouns

A bill that forbids schools from informing parents if their children wish to change their pronouns unless the kids provide agreement or the law else demands it has been approved by the California Senate.

With eight Republican colleagues voting against AB-1955 and all 29 Democrats voting in support, the legislation was carried along party lines. It now goes to the state Assembly, where committees and the whole body must approve it before it can be forwarded to Governor Gavin Newsom’s (D) desk. 

Bill aims to outlaw “enacting or enforcing any policy, rule, or administrative regulation that requires an employee or a contractor to disclose any information related to a pupil’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression to any other person without the pupil’s consent unless otherwise required by law, as provided.” This includes school districts and the boards of other educational institutions.

It would also avoid the possibility of governing bodies “retaliating or taking adverse action against an employee on the basis that the employee supported a pupil in the exercise of specified rights, work activities, or providing certain instruction, as provided.” 

Although Newsom has not yet commented on the bill, he stated that, should it reach his desk, he looks forward to considering it. While the woke left supports this idea, parents deserve a spot in their children’s education.

Many parents believe schools should not be hiding anything from them, especially when it comes to their own children’s health and safety.
