Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.7

North Dakota passed a bill allowing public school teachers and government workers to ignore students’ and coworkers’ preferred pronouns. The bill prohibits trans-identifying students from using their preferred bathrooms without consent from a parent or guardian.  It also will require teachers to inform parents if their child starts identifying as transgender. The support from both chambers of the ND government was enough to pass the bill without the governor’s approval. Republican officials are saying that this bill is making parents more involved in these types of situations.
