Public school teachers, administrators and staff refusing to address ‘transgender” students by their preferred pronouns or names could be called under investigation, the United States Department of Education’s (DOE) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) recently declared.

Attempts by President Donald Trump’s administration to turn former President Barack Obama’s aggressive pro-LGBT agenda in public schools around have hit an obstacle with the OCR’s latest memo.
“Although Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued a joint memo in February that effectively rescinded last year’s Obama administration guidance that called on schools to allow students to access bathrooms and locker rooms that are in accordance with their gender identity, the memo states that transgender students still have some valid discrimination complaints worthy of an OCR investigation,” The Christian Post (CP) reported.
In the OCR’s pro-LGBT directive, public school employees will face punishment for not acquiescing to gender-confused student’s demands regarding their self-proclaimed sexuality.
