Lawsuit Seeks Transparency Into Federal Gender Policy Secrecy

Parents across the nation are fighting against the pervasive influence of gender ideology activists not only in public schools but also within the corridors of federal policymaking. At the heart of this contention are proposed modifications to Title IX regulations aimed to redefine illegal discrimination by including gender identity, a move that would upend five decades of educational policy.

The Biden administration has refused to disclose its communications with activist groups concerning these Title IX amendments. This follows a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed over a year and a half ago by Parents Defending Education (PDE), a grassroots organization that opposes political indoctrination in American schools. 

PDE sought records detailing communications between administration officials and groups including the New Venture Fund, Governing for Impact, and the National Student Legal Defense Network. Each of these leftist organizations is linked to globalist billionaire George Soros.

In light of the administration’s refusal to provide the requested documents according to law, PDE filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Wednesday, seeking a court order compelling compliance with FOIA.

Nicole Neily, President of PDE, criticized the federal government for its opaque practices, suggesting that the proposed rules uncannily echo the recommendations of these left-leaning groups. The concerns are not merely ideological; they reflect a profound anxiety about the potential erosion of parental rights and the impact of sweeping regulatory changes on millions of students nationwide.

Critics argue that by conflating gender identity with biological gender, the administration is overstepping its bounds, undermining the legislative intent behind Title IX and sidelining parents from crucial conversations about their children’s education. Oklahoma State Superintendent Ryan Walters vocalized his opposition, criticizing the proposed changes as “one of the most illegal, impractical, and discriminatory policies” he has encountered. His condemnation echoes a broader sentiment that such federal overreach could devastate women’s athletics and compromise the safety and privacy of students.

The Department of Education’s reticence is not an isolated incident. Similar stonewalling tactics were encountered by Nicole Solas, a parental rights activist, who faced exorbitant fees for public records requests in Rhode Island. Such barriers to transparency hinder public scrutiny and debate, essential components of a functioning democracy.

PDE’s lawsuit underscores the urgency of this issue, aiming to shed light on the extent of the administration’s collaboration with ideologically driven organizations. The legal action represents a broader struggle for accountability as parents and concerned citizens seek to preserve educational integrity and safeguard their rights.
