Courts Claim That Concerned Parents Have No Standing to Sue a Wisconsin School District to Protect Their Children

Parents try to protect their children from danger, but courts don’t seem willing to allow it.

A group of parents with children in the Eau Claire Area School District (ECASD) in Wisconsin is trying to protect peer-pressured children from the transgender agenda and to assert their rights as parents.

The school district requires staff to hide students’ “transgenderism.” These children are caught up in a social trend that can ruin their lives. Government schools in ECASD essentially orders faculty to be complicit in keeping secrets between themselves and minors — a safeguarding red flag that should outrage all parents in the district.

America First Legal (AFL) and the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) represent parents with children in ECASD. Parents Protecting Our Children filed a lawsuit against the school board and the superintendent on the grounds that the policy violates their right to guide their children’s religious and moral upbringing. From AFL:

Over 1,000 school districts around the country, covering nearly 11 million students, have similar policies. However, the federal courts are ignoring their responsibility to resolve challenges to these policies by saying parents who are objecting have not been injured because their child has not yet been subject to a secret gender transition by government bureaucrats.

A federal district court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit contended that the concerned parents do not having standing to bring the lawsuit.

“This is not consistent with the law on ‘standing’ and results in an egregiously wrong situation where parents cannot challenge policies until their children have already been harmed,” wrote ADF.

ADF and WILL have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case.

There have been approximately 30 cases with similar facts to this one, and the courts are almost uniformly finding that parents who have children subjected to these policies are not “injured” and cannot maintain a claim.

Be clear about one thing: they are after your children.
