Kansas’ AG is telling schools they must out trans kids to parents – even with no specific law

(AP) — Kansas’ attorney general is telling public schools that they’re required to tell parents their children are transgender or non-binary even if they’re not out at home. 

Republican Kris Kobach is doing so even though Kansas is not among the states with a law that explicitly has the requirement. 

Kobach maintains that failing to disclose when a child is socially transitioning or identifying as non-binary at school violates a parents’ rights. 

He sent letters in December to six local school districts and followed up with a public statement Thursday after four didn’t rewrite their policies. 

Kobach’s action is part of a trend of Republican attorneys general asserting their authority in culture war debates.
