New Texas bill would force school to out gay students to their parents, critics say

A Texas state lawmaker has proposed a law that critics say would force schools to out gay students against their will to their parents.

State Rep. Konni Burton filed Senate Bill 242 just days after Donald Trump was elected president, amid increasing reports of harassment and violence against minorities across the country.

Elliott Griffin, Burton’s chief of staff, told the Houston Chronicle the bill was “written in response to the Fort Worth school district issuing new guidelines about transgender students.”

The guidelines required schools to recognize students based on their gender of choice while allowing them to use the bathroom of their choice. Griffin said those guidelines also limit parents’ access to information about their children.

Until the person is 18, the parent should know everything!
If you're going to hold the individual responsible for their actions prior to that and not require notification to the parents, change the majority age!

Why is this an issue - you liberal morons!

4:43 Try to get your child's medical records from the doctor. The doctor must have the child's permission to release.

The reason libs are upset is because if you can see all the records on your child you can see how the schools treat your kids. Also you can see the kind of inappriate information they keep on them. Along with that the schools have to be careful what they say and ask the kids becasue you could see that as well. Its simpley transparency and Liberals hate that. It brings them into the light.
