Feb 16, 2024, 10:23 AM

(From AP News) Independent schools in Georgia may soon be required to obtain parental permission before addressing gender identity issues with students, according to a proposal advancing in the state Senate. The latest version of the bill also mandates parental consent for changes to a child's records related to gender transition. Private schools that violate the law would be banned from getting state money provided by vouchers for children with special educational needs. Passed 6-3 along party lines, the bill awaits Senate debate, potentially impacting how private schools handle gender identity discussions.
