Parents, students to appeal trial court's dismissal of suit against Albemarle schools

Tuesday, Jun 7, 2022

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kate Anderson, director of the ADF Center for Parental Rights, regarding a Virginia trial judge’s dismissal last week of C.I. v. Albemarle County School Board, a lawsuit filed by parents and students to challenge the school board’s indoctrination of students in racially divisive ideology:

“The court’s dismissal of the valid concerns of parents and students challenging the Albemarle County School Board’s racially discriminatory policy is disappointing, but the case will continue on appeal. Every student deserves to be treated equally under the law, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or religion. Public schools cannot attack or demean students based on these or any other characteristics. We look forward to continuing to represent these parents and students as they stand up against a school district that continues to ignore their legitimate interests and legal rights.”
