Parents Urge Schools To Tell Them About Gender Pronoun Changes Of Their Kids

  • Voters support school policies that require educators to tell parents about changes to their student’s pronouns, a nationwide poll found. The findings come as parental notification policies have stirred controversy as advocates and parents square off in school board meetings.
  • The Center Square Voter’s Voice Poll conducted in conjunction with Noble Predictive Insights found that two-thirds of voters back measures requiring parental notification of changes in a student’s preferred gender as school gender policies have been scrutinized by the courts in recent years.
  • The poll of more than 2,500 registered voters, including over 1,000 Republicans and Democrats and almost 500 independents, was conducted in late October and asked respondents if teachers should “be obligated to inform parents if their child changes their gender identification or preferred pronouns at school.”
