The alleged brainwashing of Jessica Konen’s daughter Alicia, 11, into believing that she was a transgender boy was done at Buena Vista Middle School in Spreckels. The girl was reportedly told by educators there that she was upset because she didn’t know who she “truly was inside,” according to the Daily Mail.
Without consent from the mother, the school permitted the child to use male pronouns in class and the boy’s bathroom as well.
The single mother accused teachers of encouraging her daughter to become a trans boy in 2019. When COVID hit and the child had to stay at home, she reverted to being a girl.
The Spreckels Union School District never admitted fault in the matter. They did, however, settle with the mother, highlighting the issue over parental rights concerning their children’s decisions in school-related situations.

Konen was tenacious concerning the situation and filed a legal claim against the school district and two seventh-grade teachers in 2021. She charged that the teachers kept her daughter’s trans identity secret from her and hid the fact that she was having suicidal thoughts.
Since all of this transpired, Alicia has been moved to another school district where she is attending high school as a girl, according to the Daily Mail.
The mother contended in court papers that distance learning was difficult for her daughter, “but there was a silver lining — because A.G. was at home throughout the school day, she was no longer in the clutches of Ms. Caldiera (sic) and Ms. Baraki. Freed from their influence A.G. began to return to her old self.”
“They need to understand their place, and they need to stay in their place. And schools nowadays, they’re awful,” Konen told Fox News Digital in an interview.
“So, I’m going to fight this fight and keep fighting this fight. I am not going to allow this to keep happening to children. I feel that the fight, it has to continue,” she vowed.
Center for American Liberty is proud to announce a settlement in Konen v. Spreckels Union School District that resulted in a $100,000 payment by the school district to Jessica and Alicia for the violation of their rights.

Mother and daughter are now getting along well and are far more open with one another since the child was removed from the influence of the two teachers.
“I think it took a lot of guts for both of us to be able to open up publicly and explain what is happening. We definitely are going to be at peace and be able to try to move on from this. But parents, pay attention, ask the questions that are offered,” she urged.
“Put yourself in uncomfortable situations because you don’t know what someone’s going through. You don’t know what they’re teaching in schools anymore. Just be active in your kid’s lives and don’t be scared to speak up,” Konen advised.
“At its core, this case is about upholding the sacred bond between parents and their children. Parents have an inherent right to be involved in pivotal decisions concerning their children’s lives,” Mark Trammell, who is the executive director of the Center for American Liberty, stated according to the Daily Mail.

The settlement is a “huge win for Jessica and Alicia, and it’s also a win for parents across the country,” the Center for American Liberty said on its website. “Increasingly, schools are pushing radical gender ideology on young students and socially transitioning vulnerable children—without parental notification or consent.”
Konen’s victory came two days after California’s Attorney General Rob Bonta sued a school district regarding a new policy that mandates teachers must notify parents if their child changes their identity or pronouns.

The attorney general announced on Monday the pending lawsuit against the Chino Valley Unified School District in southern California. He claimed that its “parental notification” policy (5020.1) is discriminatory, violating both civil rights and privacy laws.
He went on to assert that the policy puts transgender and gender-nonconforming students in “danger of imminent, irreparable harm,” by putting them at risk of being outed at home “before they’re ready.”
A public meeting was held in July by the district school board on whether the policy should be adopted or not. It reportedly requires school personnel to “out” transgender and gender-nonconforming students to their parents or guardians without their consent.
