Missouri AG doubles down on firing school officials who took students to drag show: 'It's a huge problem'
Missouri fighting back against ‘woke, left-wing ideology’: AG Andrew Bailey
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey says his office is taking an ‘all hands on deck approach’ after a middle school took students to a drag show without parents’ consent.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has doubled down on his office’s plans to explore "all legal options" against middle school officials who gave the green light for their students to attend a drag queen breakfast.
"It’s a huge problem," Bailey said on "Varney & Co." Wednesday. "State statute in Missouri governs how human sexuality is to be taught by educators, and it doesn't authorize drag shows. There's also a parental notification requirement. So the school district undermined the statutes by taking the kids to the drag show without notifying the parents."
Last week, around 30 Columbia middle schoolers attended a drag performance hosted by the Nclusion Plus performance group at the annual Columbia Values Diversity Breakfast.
The city's website said the event "typically features a breakfast, award presentation, artistic celebrations, and keynote addresses. The Celebration is coordinated by the City's Office of Cultural Affairs and enjoys the support of many community volunteers and sponsors."

A parent posted a school permission slip for the event on Facebook, which noted that there would be "songs" and "performances," but did not mention a drag show.
