Liberty Counsel caught a school administrator plotting with local activists to target and recruit students to join a Gay-Straight Alliance - while intentionally hiding this information from their parents - at the Forrest M. Bird Charter School in Idaho. In a recorded meeting, Principal Mary Jensen admitted the secrecy under which school staff had operated and the agenda of the adults participating.
Liberty Counsel originally contacted the school asking for assurances that it would respect parental rights. The school falsely claimed no violations had taken place. It is outrageous that this school would intentionally undermine parental rights in this manner. Parents have the fundamental right to know about and direct the activities and associations of their minor children.
