Middle school teacher asks students in writing if it’s ‘okay’ to reveal their preferred pronouns to parents

The “woke” war between parents and teachers rages on in America, with one anti-capitalist teacher in a Minnesota middle school revealing that she provides her students with a pronoun preference survey at the start of the year and asks whether she should conceal their preferences from their parents when the school speaks with them.

Mandi Jung of Highland Park Middle School in St. Paul, Minnesota, is thoughtful enough to post her curriculum materials on her website, and that’s where Fox News Digital discovered the survey.

“These are all resources that I use or have used at the beginning of the school year,” the teacher proudly stated. “Please enjoy.”

Fox News reports:

Some of the questions included: 

    • “What name should I use when speaking to your parents?”
    • “What pronouns should we use when we talk about you? (CHOOSE AS MANY AS YOU WANT)”
    • “Is it okay to use the pronouns you selected above when we talk to your parents?”
    • “Is it okay to use the pronouns you selected above when we talk to other students or the class?


A spokesperson for the school district cited the existing policy which reads, “Respect all students’ gender identity and gender expression by honoring the right of students to be identified and addressed by their preferred name and pronoun.”

It’s a policy the school appears to have embraced years ago.

American Wire found this video from 2017 on the Highland Park Middle School YouTube page, in which a student announces that gender will be a topic of discussion.

And, clearly, the National Education Association loves Jung.

In August, they tweeted out this video of her encouraging new teachers to join the union.

But not everyone is a fan.

“That we live in a country where schools are actively pushing kids to change their gender and hide it from their parents is something I never thought I would face as a parent,” Kimberly S. Hermann from the Southeastern Legal Foundation told Fox News.

In her professional opinion, the lack of parental consent may be a violation of federal law.

“Surveys like this one not only violate the law, but they are aimed at separating children from their parents,” she stated. “Parents must know that when schools ask children about their emotional health, sexual identity, and family relationships without parental consent they violate federal law.”

But that hasn’t stopped educators from around the country from trying to do it.

As Fox News Digital previously reported, the American Federation of Teachers, under the direction of Randi Weingarten, pushed the use of “pronoun cards” that asked students if teachers should hide their pronoun preferences from their parents.

“Additionally, the defunct Biden Foundation partnered with an organization called Gender Spectrum, which supported teachers hiding a students’ transgender status from parents.,” the outlet reported Monday.

And in August, grades 6-12 teachers at Mentor Public Schools received an email “saying they don’t have to notify parents of a name or pronoun change if the student only requests it informally and does not ask for it to be changed in Google or the Infinite Campus parent portal.”
