Wisconsin school yields to pressure group on reading of transgender children's book
The Mount Horeb Area School District in southern Wisconsin cancelled the planned reading of a book about a transgender child (born anatomically male but identifying as female), named “I Am Jazz”, by Jessica Herthel, Jazz Jennings, and Shelagh McNicholas. It yielded after an out of state group called the “Liberty Counsel” threatened to sue.
A Madison, WI has a story here.
The school district seems to be trying to arrange optional sessions.
