K-12 Governance Climate: Judge: Names of suing parents must be given to Madison school district lawyers

Ed Treleven:

The names of a group of parents suing the Madison School District over the district’s administrative guidance on transgender and nonbinary students can remain out of the public eye, but a Dane County judge said they must be identified to lawyers representing the district and other groups defending the guidance in court.

Circuit Judge Frank Remington said during a hearing held Tuesday by video conference that while the parents’ names can be protected, they cannot pursue the case against the district anonymously.

Remington also allowed three groups of Madison high school students, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin, to become parties in the case to support the district’s guidance in court.

Madison’s taxpayer supported K-12 school district, despite spending far more than most, has long tolerated disastrous reading results.
