School district’s new ‘anti-bullying’ policy says faculty can’t call students ‘girls and boys,’ but that’s not all

A North Carolina school district will soon no longer be allowed to refer to students by their gender, boy or girl, as new rules to support transgender students are toppling basic, common sense classroom etiquette.

In the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District in North Carolina, teachers must refer to their classes as “students” and “scholars,” according to WSOCTV.

And that’s not all that is changing.

Eliminating boy and girl references is one of several policies included in the CMS bully prevention regulations.

One policy allows students to participate in extracurricular activities and overnight field trips based on their gender identity. A student who identifies as a girl would be allowed to participate in an “all-girl” overnight trip.

Another policy says CMS must evaluate all gender-based activities and “maintain only those that have clear and sound pedagogical purpose.”

The school district is also trying to implement rules that would allow students to use whichever bathroom they prefer, despite their gender.

But, the U.S. Supreme Court has recently put a hold on that matter for the time being, making it unenforceable.
