A controversial lawsuit brought by three mothers, Carmilla Tatel, Stacy Dunn and Gretchen Melton alleging that their children’s first-grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary School in Pittsburgh taught six and seven-year-old children about gender dysphoria and transgender transition can now continue according to Fox News.

The mothers allege the teacher violated school district policy, Pennsylvania state law and the 14th Amendment Constitution of the United States.

United States District Judge Joy Flowers Conti ruled on Oct. 27 that Tatel v. Mt. Lebanon School District can move forward based on the case’s merits. Flowers-Conti wrote that the plaintiffs have “sufficient reason to allege their constitutional rights were violated if their claims are true.”

The mothers are seeking a court order to stop the gender-ideology indoctrination, or for the school to provide parents the capability of opting out of those lessons.

The Post Millennial reported that the teacher identified as Megan Williams had according to the mothers, “began the process of interjecting her own personal life and views into the classroom” and “explained to her students that sometimes ‘parents are wrong’ and parents and doctors ‘make mistakes’ when they bring a child home from the hospital.”

Williams allegedly has a child that she identifies as transgender.

District spokesperson Kristen James told Fox News,

“The Mt. Lebanon School District deeply values and appreciates the close partnership we have with our families and strives to be a place where every student feels welcomed, valued and respected. The complaint filed against the district, its board and employees contains various allegations that are untrue or based on partial truths that mischaracterize events for sensational effect. The district looks forward to the opportunity to set the record straight.”

According to the lawsuit obtained by Fox News, the school district rebuffed the mother’s concerns when they brought attention to the situation.

The mothers were told, “that Williams could conduct this instruction both now and in the future and without even a commitment to providing parental notification and opt out rights.”

They went on to explain that the issue was then brought before three separate Mt. Lebanon School Board meetings, “without any real recognition of Plaintiffs’ parental rights by the School Board Defendants – and with the Board President, Defendant Wyland, giving a roughly five-minute prepared monologue during the public comment section of one of the meetings in favor of Williams’ instruction, including indicating that he believed it was consistent with the District’s strategic plan and without any commitment to or mention of providing parental notification and opt out rights.”

In their case the mothers conclude, “The conduct of the Administration Defendants and the School Board Defendants constitutes, at a minimum, a de facto policy permitting the teaching of gender dysphoria and transgender transitioning in the District, including in elementary school and including doing so without parental notification and opt out rights.”

The mothers alleged further in the lawsuit that Williams has told them that she “has an agenda” and intends to continue to teach “right on the edge.”
