A teacher from Indiana, John Kluge, is claiming that he was forced to resign after refusing to call transgender kids by their preferred names.
Given the hostility toward folks who refuse to go along with the insanity being pushed on them from a wayward and often godless culture, it’s not surprising in the least to see this happen in the public school setting.
Kluge, 28, and a former orchestra teacher, said that the school had started enforcing a policy requiring teachers to call students by their preferred names.Advertisement - story continues below
Because of his religious beliefs, Kluge said that he could not bring himself to comply with the policy, so he took it up with school officials who reportedly permitted Kluge to call the kids by their last names instead to avoid issues.
According to a report in the Indianapolis Star, however, officials nixed their deal with Kluge several months ago and said that for the upcoming school year, Kluge would be required to call students by their preferred names.Trending:
Kluge said that the school did not provide a reason that they reneged on their initial compromise.
NBC News later reported that Kluge “voluntarily submitted his resignation prior to the end of the school year.” Kluge, however, says that’s not what happened.
He states that the letter of resignation was submitted because he was threatened with a firing and that he later asked for the letter to be withdrawn.
Kluge said the policy at the school goes against his religious beliefs and that it violates his constitutional rights. He went on to state that by forcing him to comply with the policy, it’s tantamount to his giving encouragement to children engaged in a lifestyle he believes is wrong.
This is the sort of junk that’s going to continue to go on at public schools as long as they are overseen by the federal government. It’s time to strip our schools away from them and place the power back in the hands of parents and local governments.
It would be even better to completely privatize education and allow competition and the free market to handle these situations, thus preserving the liberty of all those involved in these kind of incidents.
