Virginia School Board Adopts GOP Gov’s Parental Rights Policy After Parents Slap It with Lawsuit

The Virginia Beach School Board approved Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s gender

transition notification policy after being hit with a lawsuit from parents. In August, the board voted on the policy but was deadlocked with five votes in favor and five against, effectively stalling the proposal, which prompted several parents to file a lawsuit in September demanding the district protect parental rights. The board took up the issue again this week, however, and voted 9 to 1 in favor of adopting Youngkin’s policy.
