CA Lawmakers Seek To Reverse Law That Prohibits Teachers From Disclosing Student Gender Identities

California Republican lawmakers introduced a bill that would require school districts to alert parents if their child is trans-identifying or “non-binary” after a state high school fired one of its teachers for violating a state anti-discrimination law that prohibits such interactions.

Last week, Assemblymembers Bill Essayli (R-Riverside) and James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) unveiled AB-1314, otherwise known as the “Gender identity: parental notification” bill, which would require school district officials to notify parents within three days in writing if their children identify contrary to their biological sex documented on their official records or birth certificate.

“Parents play a critical role in nurturing and supporting children and they cannot be removed from the equation,” Essayli said during a Monday news conference, The Los Angeles Times reported.

“Concealing information from parents is not only wrong — it’s dangerous and harmful to the emotional and physical safety of trans minors,” Essayli added, according to ABC7.
