for Gender-Confused Students
Last week President Biden said prior to signing an executive order, “ Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.” He then proceeded to fulfill a campaign promise of reinstating the Obama-Biden guidance that Trump revoked and restored “transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms based on their gender identity. He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights.
Parents with children in public schools need to be aware of this change, but they also need to realize there is no federal law and no court decision that mandates that school districts make this their policy. None. Unfortunately, Biden is using the threat of removing federal funding from schools that don’t cooperate with his dangerous policy so most schools will just go along with it no matter the harm to students.

SPRING PRIMARY ELECTION
Tuesday, February 16, 2021
Be ready to vote!
As of this past Monday, absentee ballots are being mailed to Wisconsin voters for the upcoming Spring nonpartisan primary election on Tuesday, February 16. The only statewide race on the ballot is for the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Seven candidates for this office are on everyone’s primary ballot. The top two vote-getters will go on to the Tuesday, April 6, general election. Local offices such as school board, mayors. city councils and town and village boards are also part of this nonpartisan election.
Gearing up for another election may not make us ecstatic, but it is still how we keep this representative republic at all viable; and it is part of Christians being good stewards of the form of government God has given us. Wisconsin family Council has some educational information on the state superintendent of public instruction candidates available. See information below.
Celebrating the Final Days of School Choice Week
“National School Choice Week provides an exciting opportunity, every year, for teachers and administrators to celebrate what makes their schools great! We invite you to celebrate your school, your students, your parents, your teachers and your staff during National School Choice Week. You can plan any type of activity or project designed to spotlight your school.”
CLICK HERE for some last-minute ideas to finish up the School Choice Week (1/24-1/30) celebration!
Wisconsin Family Action believes that parents are best equipped to decide what type of education their children receive, not impersonal bureaucratic agencies. They, rather than government entities, are most deeply and immediately concerned about the well-being of their children.

Update on Vaccination Mandates and Religious Freedom Bills
Last week, a public hearing was held in the Senate’s Committee on Human Services, Children and Families for the following bills:
Senate Bill 4 – Deals with prohibiting certain state and/or local officials from mandating the COVID-19 vaccine
Senate Bill 5 – Deals with prohibiting employers from mandating the COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment
Senate Bill 7 – Deals with prohibiting local health officers from closing or prohibiting gatherings in places of worship during the coronavirus crisis
Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling testified in support of all three bills. Appling’s testimony on the vaccine-related bills focused on the right of individuals to determine for themselves whether they take the vaccine or not and reminded legislators that the state constitution clearly protects the right of conscience. On the bill related to closing churches, Appling noted that the law requires that churches be treated the same as other essential services, which some local officials had not done. The bills are scheduled to be voted on in the full Senate today.
Julaine Appling gave an update after lending her testimony at this public hearing. Watch the video HERE. For a full update on these bills and related legislative matters, listen to yesterday’s Home Front program HERE.
