One Wisconsin mother is criticizing a school policy that allows students to use bathrooms and locker rooms based on their chosen gender identity without input from parents.

Parents have challenged this policy in Doe v. Bethel Local School District Board of Education, currently under review by a federal appellate court.

The case may reach the Supreme Court due to national focus on this issue and the numerous similar policies and challenges in schools nationwide.

Alliance Defending Freedom, a religious freedom group involved in the case, filed a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit on behalf of Tammy Fournier, the mother involved.

Fournier sued her child’s school previously after it enforced a policy altering students’ names and pronouns without parental consent.

Although a Wisconsin court ruled in Fournier’s favor last autumn, similar policies persist in schools nationwide.

Fournier, among other parents, is speaking out about the issue, with more parents taking legal action and advocating for their children’s rights.

Proponents of transgender policies argue they safeguard students during a challenging transition, while opponents emphasize parents’ authority to be informed and make decisions regarding their children.
