Judge rules in favor of teacher suspended for violating school’s pronoun policy

A teacher in Virginia was suspended recently for reportedly violating a new school policy requiring staff to use students’ preferred pronouns.

Tanner Cross challenged his suspension in court, however, and a state judge issued an injunction in his favor on Tuesday.

“I will never lie to them”

According to The Hill, the gym teacher publicly spoke out against the rule before he was suspended last month from his position at Leesburg Elementary in Loudon County.

“I love all of my students, but I will never lie to them regardless of consequences,” he said in reference to the school’s pronoun policy.

The instructor has since received support from conservative legal group Alliance Defending Freedom and his attorney argued during a hearing last week that the board’s decision in his case was unconstitutional.

Circuit Court Judge Jim Plowman Jr. proved sympathetic to the position and issued a temporary injunction against the suspension to remain in effect until the end of the year.

In a statement celebrating the decision, the ADF extended thanks to those who have supported Cross along the way.

“We must stand up for Tanner”

“Everyone’s rights come under threat if a school board can strip teachers like Tanner of their fundamental rights as Americans citizens and get away with it,” said attorney Tyson Langhofer.

The ADF lawyer made his remarks during a rally held for Cross, adding: “To preserve a free society for ourselves and our children, we must stand up for Tanner and all citizens who have the courage to express their views.”

Transgender-related issues have been at the forefront of political debates in communities across the nation, particularly whether trans athletes should be required to play on teams matching their biological sex.

A survey published last month found that 62% of Americans show some level of support for laws mandating such regulations. As Gallup found, more than 4 in 10 Democrats said a student’s sports team should match the sex assigned at birth.

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ushered in Pride Month this year with a statement on the matter, asserting: “We believe in the state of Florida in protecting the fairness and integrity of women’s athletics … girls are going to play girls’ sports and boys are going to play boys’ sports.”
