Act Now! Decatur City School Board to
Consider Transgender Policy

“This attempt at indoctrination and harm to our children must be stopped in its tracks. It’s a battle that we must all be engaged in – either through prayer or showing up to the school board meeting. If passed in Decatur, I can assure you it will be your school district one day.” – Tanya Ditty, Director, Concerned Women for America of Georgia

In a July 26, 2016 memo to his staff City Schools of Decatur Superintendent David Dude quietly began implementing radically new transgender guidelines. That memo, reprinted verbatim in bold font, is as follows: “To be clear, here are some examples of situations related to gender identity and how I expect them to be handled in compliance with this policy. For purpose of these examples, assume this student was assigned the sex of male at birth and now identifies as female.

  • This student should be treated the same as any other female student.
  • She should not be identified as anything other than female.
  • She should be allowed to use the female restroom.
  • She should be allowed to use the female locker room. · She should be allowed to try out for ‘female’ sports.
  • She should be allowed to room with other females on field trips.”

A Parental Rights Amendment to the Constitution is LONG Over-due!
Since 2008 Congress has rejected at least a dozen¹ proposed Parental Rights Amendments, but a new bill to restore parental rights was introduced on August 1, 2017 by Senators Graham, Blunt, Isakson, Risch, Grassley and Rubio. S.J. Res. 48 refers to six areas U.S. parental authority may be or is being restricted, minimized, threatened, or globally influenced. S.J. Res. 48 states:

Senate Joint Resolution, S.J. Res. 48
“SECTION 1. The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children is a fundamental right.
“SECTION 2. The parental right to direct education includes the right to choose, as an alternative to public education, private, religious, or home schools, and the right to make reasonable choices within public schools for one’s child.
“SECTION 3. Neither the United States nor any State shall infringe these rights without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served.
“SECTION 4. The parental rights guaranteed by this article shall not be denied or abridged on account of disability.
“SECTION 5. This article shall not be construed to apply to a parental action or decision that would end life.
“SECTION 6. No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.”
