Guidelines released this September by the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) in Ontario are instructing teachers to conceal each student’s “gender identity” from the pupil’s parents unless given permission from the child to do so.I do not see any legitimate excuse for a school to withhold information from a parent.
“Regardless of age or grade, staff must keep a student’s gender identity and gender expression status confidential unless the student gives explicit consent to inform the parent(s)/guardian(s), or there is a specific ‘need to know’ (e.g., to fulfill a specific accommodation request),” states the recently released document titled “Gender Identity and Gender Expression Guideline.”
The new guideline also covers topics called ““decolonizing gender,” “2SLGBTQI+ What does it mean?” and “Names, Pronouns, and Honorifics” among other things.
I am surprised that anyone puts up with teachers and other school officials conspiring to change and conceal a gender identity. Those people are like child molesters. Not just criminal, but going beyond basic moral norms in a way that is offensive to almost everyone.
