(COLLEGE FIX) -- A high-school teacher in Jacksonville, Florida has been “counseled” and his colleagues will get training to ensure an “inclusive [school] environment” after a student’s preferred pronoun request was denied.
According to an email exchange obtained by First Coast News, Sandalwood High School’s Thomas Caggiano told the student “I will NOT refer to you with female pronouns. If this is not acceptable for you, change classes.”
Caggiano continued: “I will call you by any reasonable name you like, but the pronouns are not a negotiable thing for me.”
