(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Walsh Middle School in Round Rock, Texas, advised teachers at a training seminar not to tell parents that their children identify as “transgender” or “non-binary” because it is “potentially dangerous” and “damaging,” American Greatness reported.
“DO NOT contact their parents and out them to their families,” a PowerPoint slide said under a section regarding transgender students titled, “What NOT to Do.”
The middle school in the Round Rock Independent School District further advised teachers that telling parents about a student’s transgender identification “is potentially dangerous and could be long-term damaging for the student.”
The RRISD told teachers to keep the training secret, but a teacher in the district revealed the abusive slides, which were intended to indoctrinate children and teachers in transgender ideology and prevent parents from acting as moral guides.
The teacher described the school’s efforts to keep him or her from sharing information with parents.
“The first time I was asked by a student to refer to themselves by a different gender, a different name, and different pronouns,” the teacher said. “I went to my principal and counselor for help. I have never received an email like that.”
“I asked if I could contact the parents first to make sure that they were aware of this because I would want to know as a parent,” the teacher continued. “They told me no, that the child could get beat and maybe not be accepted by their family. I was to accept and comply.”
Another slide advised teachers on the question, “What if I make a mistake and misgender someone?,” and another one gave “pronoun tips.”
The presentation undermined the school’s own guidance counselor, who the slides called a “dangerous” stranger.
“They [strangers] can ruin your entire life, get you kicked out of your home by your parents, or make other teachers treat you awfully and make your school experience miserable,” the slide said. “They can even get you killed by outing you without your permission, which they are usually expected to do.”
