Teachers making accommodations, preparing to counsel other students.
From "8-year-old boy returning to class as a girl" posted 2/8/08 at WorldNetDaily.com
An 8-year-old boy is preparing to return to his home school district in Colorado as a girl, so school officials are designating two school restrooms as unisex facilities, and preparing to counsel other students on the issue of transgenderism.
The report comes from KUSA-Television in Denver, which did not identify the third-grade student or his family in the Castle Rock suburban district.
But the report said the student had attended his home district several years ago, as a boy, and then had taken classes in another district for a time.
One parent, identified by the television station as Dave M., said children in the elementary school are going to wonder what's going on.
"I see this as being a very difficult situation to explain to my daughter, to explain why someone would not want to be the gender they were born with," he told the station.
His daughter will share a classroom with the boy dressing as a girl.
"I do think that there's going to be an acknowledgment that 'Why are you in a dress this year when you were in pants last year?'" he said.
A spokeswoman for the Douglas County School District in Castle Rock, said the district's calling "is to educate all kids no matter where they come from, what their background is, beliefs, values, it doesn't matter."
Whei Wong, the district spokeswoman, said the school is preparing two "unisex" restrooms for the student to use and teachers have been instructed to address the student by name, instead of using a "he" or "she" pronoun.
...Wong confirmed "mental health professionals" would be provided for other students, staff or parents if there are "any concerns at all."

So is this where we are at?
Instead of helping confused children to embrace reality, we will instead ALL live a lie?
I wonder if we have become so incapable of rational thought that parents and teachers will actually accept this hideous psychobabble. A faithful Christian teacher or parent must REFUSE.
Since transgenderism is still categorized as a mental health DISORDER by the APA I'm wondering how the school can legally do this. At the very least the school is encouraging a mental disorder...
There is so little respect for even obvious physical truth in our day.
What chance does moral truth have?
