Teacher Chooses Sex Change
Gender roles not only affect students in a school, but they affect the teachers as well. In fact, students often make assumptions based on the critiques of teachers such as this one. I feel that it is an invasion of privacy to actually announce that this teacher had a sex change on the news. I am also horrified that the school sent out letters to the parents of the children in this persons classroom. As the superintendent said, this has nothing to do with the way the teacher will teach. This person has even been teaching at the school for a long time. I also find it ironic that at the end of the video the news reporter states that they would not reveal whether the teacher is having a sex change to become male or female because that is a private matter. If it was such a private matter it shouldn't have been on the news.
