Referring to the Virginia Department of Education’s (VDOE) 2023 model policies for the treatment of transgender students, attorney Wyatt Rolla of the ACLU of Virginia said Governor Glenn Youngkin’s (R) administration is “throwing school districts under the bus to advance its own dangerous anti-trans political agenda.” The new model policies, which replace the ones published by the VDOE in 2021, require teachers to use a student’s legal name and the pronouns associated with their “biological sex” unless a parent submits written instructions to use a different name or pronoun. Even when parents do submit written instructions, the policies allow teachers to ignore them and continue to use the wrong names and pronouns.
