A legal organization has taken on a California public school district that was asking students intrusive questions about their personal lives. 

The unnamed school district was surveying students about their sexual orientation and gender identity. Outraged parents contacted the Pacific Justice Institute, which immediately wrote a letter to the district.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Brad Dacus, president of PJI, says the questioning violates the law and privacy rights, and adds that the school's action was also a "clear breach of parental trust."

PJI is not identifying the district until attorneys are certain the school district is going to fully comply with their demands.

There is a lesson to be learned by parents who spoke up in a "liberal pocket" where their rights are not respected, Dacus tells OneNewsNow.

"If parents step up to the plate, they can change things," he says.
