New Loudoun County Policy Says Teachers Don’t Have To Tell Parents About Students’ Gender Dysphoria, Teacher Quits On The Spot – RedState
There are more shenanigans from the elites of the Loudoun County School Board in Virginia, and more consequences that will be borne by children and parents.
Parents and teachers have been passionately fighting against the inroads into the critical race theory curriculum and new transgender policies that usurp both science and parental rights. The latest attempt to take down parents comes in the form of a chilling new policy that would not only allow biological boys to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms, but encourages teachers to hide any discoveries of gender dysphoria among their students. students. parents.
The language in the new policy is specific about signaling to teachers that they do not have an obligation to communicate gender dysphoria issues to parents, even when teachers are required to adopt children’s “preferred pronouns” from age kindergarten.
“See additional discussions of when parents know but do not affirm the student’s transgender status in the next section.”
It is not even enough for parents to realize it. They must be asserting or they will lose their right to know what is going on with their own child at the school they pay for.
Under this bill, teachers and staff will be punished if they do not comply with students’ preferred pronouns starting in kindergarten.

One aside: do kindergarteners have “preferred pronouns” or do their parents have them? I can’t imagine a five-year-old spontaneously telling his teacher “My pronouns are she / she” unless a parent has taught him to tell people about his own pronouns. If you leave a child alone, is it something that develops naturally at the age of five?
Of course not.
Now let’s go back to the story.
RedState’s Jennifer Oliver O’Connell reported on the general nastiness surrounding school battles last week, highlighting one teacher in particular who resigned on the spot over the new policy while at a school board meeting.
Laura Morris took the microphone in tears at a recent meeting and told the school board that she has been in conflict during the new school year and may require that she violate her faith.
This summer I have struggled with the idea of going back to school, knowing that I will once again work with a school division that, despite its brilliant technology and flashy salary, promotes political ideologies that do not square with who I am as a believer in Christ. ‘.
She went on to say that Loudoun County does not value teachers and therefore cannot be part of a “machine” that forces her to support “highly politicized agendas,” and she immediately resigned. Right there on the spot.
He no longer values me or many other teachers he has employed in this county.
So, since my contract describes the power you have over my employment in Loudoun County Public Schools, I thought it necessary to resign in front of you.
School board, I resign.
I stopped his politics, stopped his training, and stopped being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas on our most vulnerable constituents: children.
I will find employment elsewhere. I encourage all parents and staff in this county to flood private schools.
Morris’s comments come from another Loudoun County teacher, Tanner Cross, who was suspended from teaching after his public comments at a board meeting. Cross, like Morris, said her faith would not allow her to abide by any policies that deny the reality of biological gender.

Loudon County and too many school districts across the country seem compelled and determined to turn away their most dedicated teachers, their mental confidence.
Perhaps this is the intentional brutalization of the United States. Since students spend more time learning about pronouns and less time learning math and reading, we are producing generations of thoughtless robots. As Jennifer Oliver O’Connell says, that can be deliberate.
Loudon County appears to be ground zero for this, but it is happening across the country. With this fatal agenda already ingrained in America’s public education systems, a quality private school or homeschool appears to be the last outpost of parents.
Here is the choice not just before parents, but for all Americans: continue to produce uneducated children who can be easily manipulated and used as pawns on the leftist agenda, or to produce thinking and reasonable children who will fight for their autonomy, their minds, its unique place. in the world, and their right to exist as God created them.
The Loudon County School Board cut off Morris’s microphone as soon as she revealed her intention to quit smoking, and they adopted a policy that only allows 10 people at a time inside the room for public comment. They have been openly hostile to parents, the very parents they are supposed to work for.
God bless brave souls like Morris and Cross. It’s time for all sane parents to stand up and fight hard. When the truth is silenced by the elites, it is time to shout louder.
