NEW POLL RESULTS: LGBT agenda in schools

NEW POLL RESULTS: LGBT agenda in schools

Do Idaho voters support pro-family, conservative, and biblically sound policy reforms? That’s what our annual “Idaho Family Policy Poll” seeks to discover—and we’re excited to release the first round of results!

This scientific public opinion poll – commissioned by Idaho Family Policy Center – utilized a large, representative sample of likely Idaho voters. Respondents were contacted by landline and mobile phone using interactive voice response (IVR) technology.

The questions focused on some of the top policy issues facing the Idaho families. We promise that we’ll share all the results over the next few days. But today, let’s focus on what Idaho voters think about parental involvement in their children’s education and the LGBT agenda in public schools.


1. Idahoan voters overwhelmingly agree that public schools should not withhold information from parents about their children.

Nearly 6,000 schools nationwide have enacted policies requiring school officials to conceal information from parents when their children begin identifying as the other gender at school, according to reporting from the New York Post.

That includes Idaho, where a Coeur d’Alene school made headlines a few years back after helping a 10-year-old girl socially transition without notifying her family.

Unsurprisingly, Idahoans stand in strong opposition to these anti-parent and anti-family policies. According to our polling, more than 83% of likely Idaho voters want schools to share information relevant to a child’s physical, emotional, or mental health with parents.

Believe it or not, this is one area where both sides of the political spectrum agree: self-identified conservatives (95%) and liberals (64%) both don’t want schools hiding this important information from parents.


2. A supermajority of Idaho voters want parents to know what public schools are teaching to their children.

The US Supreme Court has long recognized that parents are ultimately responsible for the upbringing and education of their children.

To fully exercise their natural rights, parents must know what is being taught to their children in public school classrooms. It makes sense, then, that nearly 74% of likely Idaho voters believe schools should allow parents to review all curriculum and teacher training material for each of their children’s classes.



3. Most Idaho voters don’t want public school teachers punished for using biologically accurate pronouns.

More and more often, public school teachers report feeling pressured by school administrators to use “preferred pronouns” when referring to students and other staff. Some teachers in other states have even faced disciplinary action for refusing to bend the knee to the pronoun police, who seek to enforce conformity around the radical LGBT agenda that is sweeping our public schools.

As one would imagine, most Idaho voters (62%) support legal protections for public school teachers who use biologically accurate pronouns. This is another issue of bipartisan agreement: self-identified conservatives (74%) and liberals (50%) both agree that teachers shouldn’t fall victim to harmful pronoun policies.
