Virginia high court rules for teacher in transgende­r debate


RICHMOND, Va. – The Supreme Court of Virginia upheld a lower court ruling that ordered the reinstatem­ent of a northern Virginia gym teacher who said he won’t refer to transgende­r students by their preferred pronouns. Loudoun County Public Schools filed an appeal after a judge ruled that the school system violated the free speech rights of teacher Tanner Cross by suspending him after he spoke up at a school board meeting. Cross, a teacher at Leesburg Elementary, cited his religious conviction­s for his decision.
