Montgomery families seek temporary opt-out of LGBTQ+ storybooks

July 24, 2023

Before classes begin next month, Montgomery County’s school system could know whether it has to temporarily allow parents to opt their students out of lessons that include books featuring LGBTQ+ characters. Families suing the school system have asked a judge to issue the injunction while their broader lawsuit for a permanent exemption from the lessons works it way through court. A hearing on that injunction is set for Aug. 9. Attorneys for the families have asked the judge to rule on the temporary hold before the first day of school, Aug. 28.
