Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

In a California school district, two students were suspended for five days and subjected to “restorative justice” training after a misgendering incident, according to an email reviewed by Fox News Digital. The email, sent by a former principal of Herbert Hoover High School, described the students misgendering a transgender student and running away when the teacher tried to correct them. The principal stated that the students admitted to being curious about transgender individuals. The district explained that misgendering is considered bullying based on perceived intent, and a student could be suspended if the action escalated to harassment or bullying. The district’s website describes restorative justice as a process to repair harm and promote healing in the community.
