Pages 12 and 13 of the guidance document for the treatment of transgender students state that information may be purposefully withheld from "unsupportive parents." The status of a student's sexual identity is more a personal matter than an educational one. If a student is exploring their identity, especially if they plan to transition, it is a medical and social/emotional matter. Parents should not be able to tell the school what and how to teach the students. In the same way, the school should not allow a child make such huge, life altering decisions without the knowledge or consent of their parents, even if a school staff member disagrees with the parents' response. A family may already have supports and plans in place for the particular student. The school should never interfere with how a student is being raised. As an educator, that is not my job.
