If the government wants to gather information on my child, I want to know what that information is. If it is they are gay, or that they have been given assessment tests, or that they have had psychological exams, then I as a parent have every right to know. And yes — some parents would be taken aback by news of their child being gay.

Good grades, volunteer, music, travel, fun — these are what make a person.
