Yesterday, this writer reported on the incident at Rocklin Academy, a California charter school, where a kindergarten teacher read a transgender promoting book to the class and allowed the transgender child to change clothing in the classroom causing many children to become confused and afraid.
The parental upset discussed in the article happened at a school board meeting where officials informed parents discussions will be forthcoming on how materials outside the curriculum will be handled.
Before the dust could even settle, Rocklin Academy has made the news again.
It is this more recent incident that has allowed more information to come forward regarding the first.
As reported by The Washington Times:
An elite charter school in California has been rocked by scandal since the end of the last school year, when a kindergarten teacher read her class a pair of books advocating transgender ideology, and a male kindergartener was reintroduced to the class as a girl.
Now first-graders at Rocklin Academy Gateway risk a trip to the principal’s office if they refer to their transgender classmate by the wrong name or gender pronoun, said Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resource Institute, a pro-family group based in Sacramento.
“There was a little girl who had been in class with the little boy all last year,” Ms. England said. “They’re in different classes now, but she saw him on the playground yesterday and called him by his name. The little girl was told ‘you can’t do that, his name is this name,’ and ‘you need to call him a “her.”’ Then she was called to the principal’s office.”
Ms. England said she has been in touch with the girl’s parents and described them as “outraged.” She said they met with school officials to discuss the matter Wednesday.
It’s not clear whether the girl was disciplined for the infraction. Rocklin Academy did not return a request for comment before press time.
Breitbart reported on the same incident stating:
A Californian first grader was sent to the principal’s office this week after allegedly “misgendering” a transgender student.
The incident reportedly took place at California’s Rocklin Academy, in the school playground, where the female student called her biologically male classmate “by his given name – apparently unaware that the boy now identified as a girl,” according to Fox News.
“This innocent little first grader sees a classmate, calls him by the name she knew him last year and the boy reports it to a teacher,” claimed Karen England, from the Capitol Resource Institute. “The little girl gets in trouble on the playground and then gets called out of class to the principal’s office.”
During her visit to the principal’s office, the child was reportedly “investigated” to determine “whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name.”
“After about an hour it was determined the little girl made an honest mistake and she was not punished or reprimanded. But she was terribly traumatized by the incident,” Fox News claimed.
After the child returned home upset, her mother wrote a letter to the school.
