A couple in Woodburn, Oregon is suing their school district after they discovered their eight-year-old son was asked repeatedly by his teacher if he was transgender.
The parents, who are keeping their identity private, are suing the district for nearly $1 million because they say their son’s second-grade teacher held him back from recess on multiple occasions to personally ask him if he believed he was really a girl.
They said the teacher also gave their son reading materials, videos, and other resources explaining what it means to be transgender.
The parents say they had no idea this was happening and believe what the teacher did was inappropriate. They said their child suffered significant emotional confusion by being singled out by his teacher.
