Parents file lawsuit against Loudoun County Schools for moral corruption of children
Public Advocate president Eugene Delgaudio welcomes this blockbuster lawsuit against Loudoun County schools and says: "Never in the history of the United States has there been a more corrupt conspiracy to both pervert children and single out parents for wrongful persecution for simply requesting a school system to request they respect parental rights as there exists in Loudoun County, Virginia."
A group of parents filed suit against Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia for "moral corruption of children" over the school board's promotion of radical gender ideology, Fox News reported.
America First Legal's Center for Legal Equality filed the "blockbuster lawsuit" against Loudoun County Public Schools "on behalf of 11 courageous parents" in response to "the district's systemic and egregious moral corruption of children and its deliberate, and almost gleeful, violations of parental rights to control the upbringing of their children," Fox reported.
"Many will remember that Loudoun County was the epicenter of the debate over parents' rights in the fall of 2021," America First Legal stated in a June 29 press release. "Today we bring that fight to the court to vindicate the rights of parents, not just here, but everywhere."
According to the conservative group, "The delusion that public school bureaucrats - not parents - have the right, the authority, and the power to decide what's best for a child is a sickness that has spread across the country to schools in all states."
Loudoun County, Virginia became a major political and cultural flashpoint last year after parents raised the alarm about the school board's implementation of radical gender ideology. Policies enacted by the school board permit boys who identify as girls to use girls' bathrooms and locker rooms, and force children to use the preferred gender identity "pronouns" of peers.
Last year, Daily Wire investigative reporter Luke Rosiak broke an exclusive story showing that the school board had tried to cover up an incident in which a boy wearing a skirt raped a female student in a school bathroom.
Many outraged parents responded to the controversy by flocking to school board meetings to denounce the radical policies, helping to spark a nationwide parents movement.
The mobilization of American parents against radical agendas in the classroom gave rise to a bevy of Republican-led initiatives to expand parental rights, ban LGBT-promoting curricula in the classroom, and require students to only use bathrooms and locker rooms corresponding to their biological sex.
