An Indiana school district did not violate a former teacher’s rights when they fired him for not using a transgender student’s name or gender pronouns.
That’s the decision from the federal appeals court in Chicago.
According to court records, John Kluge was hired in 2014 as the music and orchestra teacher for Brownsburg.
In 2017, district leaders began requiring the high school’s teachers to use the names and pronouns listed in the school’s official student database, where changes were permitted with letters from a student’s parent.
Kluge sued for religious discrimination after being fired for not abiding by the policy.
Hopefully he’ll appeal the decision. Speech is being trampled or outright banned for Christians
