Parental rights in education have become among the most pressing issues for conservatives nationwide.
As radical gender ideology continues to proliferate in classrooms all across the country, concerned parents are taking a stand and firing back at the leftist school boards championing such education and policies.
One Wisconsin school district in particular is feeling the heat from conservative parents.
The Eau Claire Area School District was slapped with a lawsuit Wednesday for its insistence on ‘transitioning’ children without their parent’s knowledge or consent.
Citing religious liberty and the right to raise children in accordance with their parents’ wishes—one of the oldest recognized civil liberties, America First Legal and the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty filed the litigation.
Here’s what we currently know:

The Daily Wire reports:
“Policies like Eau Claire’s blatantly violate parents’ constitutional rights to raise their children. School staff do not replace parents while their children are at school.
A gender identity transition is a major event in a child’s life; schools must defer to parents about this,” WILL Deputy Counsel Luke Berg said in a statement.
Sexual education is being taught in more schools at younger ages, and parents want to know why.
But now, Eau Claire Area School district believes parents have to "earn" the right to know their child's "preferred gender." https://t.co/YJTqc6eU1r

In a related report, The Epoch Times shared one group’s tips on combatting radical gender ideology in the classroom:
Although news stories tend to focus on dramatic confrontations with school boards, lawsuits, and elections, the first step in stopping radical curriculum is talking with teachers, Descovich said.
“If it’s an individual lesson, the first thing you should do is reach out to your child’s teacher and have a discussion and see what the concerns are,” she said.
