One fifth-grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary in Tallahassee, Fla., is learning that not every parent easily accepts a switch to gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. After 23-year-old math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent home a letter to parents suggesting her students call her “they” and “them” and by the prefix Mx. (pronounced Mix), parents complained to the school district.
The school district originally sided with Bressack but then switched to side with the parents, deciding to take Bressack out of the elementary school. She is now an adult basic education program instructor.
“It’s time for more Christian parents to run for their local school boards—whether their kids are in the government schools or not. Today’s lesson plans that are in the headlines are tomorrow’s policies in government,” commented Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins.
