North Carolina School Board Issues Radical New Transgender Guidelines

CHARLOTTE, N.C., August 16, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A North Carolina school board has issued recommendations for faculty and staff to stop calling male children "boys" and female students "girls."

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools gave a presentation to principals and counselors entitled “Supporting Transgender Students” that focused on "bully prevention." Among the various means of preventing bullying is eliminating all references to boys or girls.

Instead, the policy instructs staff to call boys and girls "students" or "scholars."

The presentation explained a new set of guidelines for faculty and staff to follow regarding transgender students. For instance, teachers will be required to "work with students" to help them determine their sexual orientation.

The new guidelines clearly consider student privacy a priority over parental rights. If a child decides s/he is the opposite sex, parents are not necessarily to be told. "A student’s transgender status is confidential," the guidelines state.  "Involvement of parents ... is determined in working with the student. … Staff must take care not to 'out' a student to others, including the parents."
