As an educator, I SUPPORT our TRANS YOUTH!
It's imperative as educators (and just frankly as adults) that we make sure all students have a chance to be successful, and can do so in a safe, positive, loving environment. This policy that is being proposed is a step in the right direction. It's important that we respect a student's gender identity by accepting their pronouns or name changes. It's equally important to respect a student's privacy, if they request so, and schools need to develop policy to respect that.
This will positively affect the mental well-being of many of our students in the commonwealth.
