Loudoun County Public Schools hit with lawsuit for 'moral corruption of children,' parental 'violations'


EXCLUSIVE - The conservative America First Legal (AFL), through its Center for Legal Equality, has filed a lawsuit against Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) "for the district’s systemic and egregious moral corruption of children and its deliberate, and almost gleeful, violations of parental rights to control the upbringing of their children."

"Parents across the country should be shocked and horrified to see a once-respected school system systematically destroyed, all because LCPS believes that it has more of a right than parents to tell a captive audience of students what they MUST believe," America First Legal said in a press release Tuesday. "Fortunately, as we have seen, there are no parents with more courage, more fight, and more rock-solid dedication to their children than in Loudoun County, Virginia."

Some of the policies targeted in the America First Legal lawsuit, which the group noted was "on behalf of eleven courageous parents," include Policy 8040 and Regulation 8040, which, the group said, "compels student speech, forces young children to use bathrooms and locker rooms with members of the opposite sex, and keeps parents in the dark when their children lead a double life as a different gender during school hours."

The lawsuit also hits LCPS for "Filling classroom libraries with books that encourage children to question their gender as early as Kindergarten; Forcing students to publicly provide their ‘pronouns’ in front of class; Making it virtually impossible for parents to remove the pornographic books available to children in LCPS libraries; Refusing student’s requests to go to the water fountain and bathroom as a form of retaliation for not wearing a mask, Hiding information from parents by charging exorbitant fees or claiming legally deficient exemptions to Freedom of Information Act requests;" and more.

"I think that Loudoun County Public School has really been the poster child across the country for… epic mismanagement and violation of parental rights and commitment to… really what has become almost a state sponsored religion of wokeism," America First Legal Senior Advisor Ian Prior told Fox News Digital.

The plaintiffs listed several demands from the school district.

"A declaration from the court that Policy and Regulation 8040, and other policies and practices violate plaintiff parents’ constitutional rights; an injunction against LCPS to prevent it from continuing to do so; the appointment of a special master to monitor LCPS and report to the court on its compliance with its legal obligations; an order directing LCPS to pay for plaintiffs’ children’s education in a private school until LCPS ceases its unlawful activities," AFL wrote.

The Loudoun County School Board did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
