School Board Reverses Suspension of Gym Coach Who Refused to Use ‘Preferred Pronouns’

The Loudoun County school board can not take any further action against Byron “Tanner” Cross, the Leesburg Elementary School gym teacher who was suspended in May for criticizing a newly adopted school district Policy 8040, which requires trans students to be addressed by their preferred pronouns, and gives students who believe they are the opposite sex access to school facilities, groups, and sports teams of their biological counterparts.

Physical education teacher Tanner Cross was fired after refusing to call a student by their preferred pronouns. Alliance Defending Freedom
