California Judge Upholds Transgender Notification, Ban on Critical Race Theory in Local School District

A California judge has upheld a local school district’s ban on Critical Race Theory instruction in the Temecula Unified School District and a policy requiring the district to notify parents if a child decides to change their gender at school. .

The ruling represents a victory, although likely only temporary, for conservative parents and school boards who implemented these policies against intense pressure from Gov. Gavin Newsom, activist groups, and the media. .

In his eight-page judgment, he wrote: Board of Directors resolution Demonstrates certain elements of critical race theory that are not taught.

Keene also spoke out on controversial issues. Parent Notification Policy It would require school district officials to tell parents if their child wants to identify a different gender or use a name other than their real name.

She said the policy applies equally to all students in the district, is “gender-neutral,” and “applies to student requests to change official or unofficial school records, so it does not apply to transgender or It does not explicitly exclude gender nonconforming students.”

Newsom has singled out the district as a target of criticism, but during an interview with Breitbart News in the spin room of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library after the Republican presidential primary debate in September, he said why parents should not give up on their children.
