Parents call for action on mixed up pronouns in school

By  | 

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) He, she or they? Parents say student pronouns are getting mixed up at one Burlington school and they want the problem addressed.

Some parents say they've noticed some teachers at Champlain Elementary School do not consistently use their children's preferred pronouns.

Some reached out to school board members Monday for help.

"For one student whose parent I met with, that resulted in that student being home-schooled because their education became so disrupted by not being respected," said Liz Curry, a school board member.

Champlain Elementary School teachers will undergo special training at a workshop next month to learn more about the topic.

The district has contracted Outright Vermont to host the workshop.
