Parents Plan Appeal as Judge Rules Against Opt-Out Right for LGBT Curriculum in Maryland

Parental and religious-freedom-rights advocates, including a group of Muslim parents, on June 6 protest a Maryland school-system policy that removes parents’ authority to opt their children out of homosexual and transgender coursework.

Catholic, Muslim and Ethiopian Orthodox parents sued the Montgomery County Board of Education on May 24, after it changed its parental-notification and opt-out policies.
