WEST POINT, Va | Teacher fired for refusing to use trans student’s pronouns
WEST POINT, Va.— A Virginia high school teacher who refused to use a transgender student’s new pronouns has been fired.
News outlets report that the West Point School Board voted unanimously Thursday to dismiss Peter Vlaming after a four-hour hearing that drew an overflow crowd. The school system said in a statement that Vlaming was fired for insubordination.
Over the summer, the ninth-grade student’s family informed the school system of the student’s gender transition to male.
