The epicenter of the most intense debates on topics such as Critical Race Theory (CRT) and masks, Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) School Board, passed a progressive transgender policy Wednesday evening despite parent and teacher pushback.

Policy 8040, titled “Rights of Transgender and Gender-Expansive Students” assures that teachers must refer to students with their preferred pronouns.

“School staff shall, at the request of a student or parent/legal guardian, when using a name or pronoun to address the student, use the name and pronoun that correspond to their consistently asserted gender identity,” the policy states.

“Students have the right to affirming learning environments,” the regulation states, simply meaning that staff will be forced to perpetuate delusion.

One LCPS teacher, however, did not stand for the continued progressive agenda of the school board.

Laura Morris, a fifth-grade teacher LCPS teacher publicly resigned at the school board meeting on Tuesday, slamming the “highly politicized agenda.”

“School board, I quit,” she said. “I quit your policies, I quit your training, and I quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas to our most vulnerable constituents – children.”

Along with Morris, over 150 parents lined up to voice their opinions to the board, according to the Washington Examiner — pushing the key vote to Wednesday.

Not only does the school board passing the policy indicate that they have opted for biological delusion over reality, but they are unwilling to listen to the parents and teachers they serve.
