Federal Court Orders School Cannot Force Teachers to Lie to Parents

Victory for 2 Brave Teachers Who Refused to Lie to Parents!

This just in!!!

VICTORY for 2 brave schools teachers against ONE rotten school policy called the Parental Exclusion Policy.

Escondido Union School District’s Parental Exclusion Policy

The EUSD Parental Exclusion Policy forces teachers to actively deceive parents and participate in a student’s social transition.

It violates parents’ fundamental right to raise their own children — and it violates teacher’s First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and free exercise of religion.


“Teachers are required to use ‘any pronouns or a gender-specific name requested by the student during school, while reverting to biological pronouns and legal names when speaking with parents in order to actively hide information about their child’s gender identity from them.”’

Mirabelli and West

2 brave teachers, Elizabeth Mirabelli and Lori Ann West were faced with a tough choice: Lie to parents, or get fired.

“Lose your faith and keep your job, or keep your faith and lose your job.’”

They sued.

Federal Judge granted the injunction, and told the School to read the Constitution.


Federal Judge issued ruling today, (see Mirabelli v Olson Order 9.14.2023) unequivocally stating the school’s policy is TRIFECTA ROTTEN!

Harms Child

1. “…harms the child who needs parental guidance and possibly mental health intervention to determine if the incongruence is organic or whether it is the result of bullying, peer pressure, or a fleeting impulse.


Harms Parents

2. “It harms the parents by depriving them of the long recognized Fourteenth Amendment right to care, guide, and make health care decisions for their children.

and finally

Harms Teachers

3. “it harms plaintiffs [teachers] who are compelled to violate the parent’s rights by forcing plaintiffs to conceal information they feel is critical for the welfare of their students — violating plaintiffs’ religious beliefs.”

Parental Notification Policy
