Please, vote NO on SB466 on April 6.
SB466 deals with student pronouns at school. There is a great deal of misinformation on this issue. It really comes down to respect. In hurts no adult to use a student's pronouns, but it is harmful to students when school personnel show them disrespect. Supportive policies improve educational outcomes for trans students. The January 27, 2022 report from the Society for Research in Child Development concluded: “Ultimately, transgender youth show more positive outcomes in school environments that implement and enforce policies and practices that affirm youth’s gender identity and protect them from discrimination.”
In addition, please note the fiscal note on SB466. Tennessee receives almost $1.3 Billion in federal education funds. The discriminatory implications of the bill put that funding at risk.
Thank you for considering my views.
