Earlier today I wrote about the Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) in Fort Collins, Colo. Today is the first day that I've heard of GSAs. And then I came across a second article about them.
This second article on FoxNews is titled, "Elementary school teachers say 'no' to parents' wishes they refer to students by pronouns given at birth".
I understand there are a lot of kooky things in California, but they spread.
Read that article.
If you, the parent, tell your kid's teacher to refer to your kid by his gender at birth, should the teacher have to follow your wishes?
If you, the parent, tell your kid's teacher to call your kid by his name, should the teacher have to do it? And, if your kid is a boy, to use "him" and "his" when referring to your boy? Must the teacher comply with your direction?
Or must the teacher call your kiddo Roberta, not Robert, if that's what the kid wants in school? And should you be told about it?
Teachers likely find themselves in a Catch-22 situation. Caught between a rock and a hard place. Caught between parents and administration. How does it work in Richland 2?
School board members just spent a lot of District money in San Diego, attending a conference of the National Association of School Boards. To what were they exposed?
