He’s at the center of an ugly controversy over transgenderism.
A high school teacher could face a federal investigation after he told students that boys cannot identify as girls and girls cannot identify as boys.— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) April 28, 2022
Mr. Hillesland gave students a letter addressing the scientific facts about gender identity. But parents say it was a pre-meditated attack on transgenderism. The school district sided with the parents — saying that students have a right to be who they are.Using that logic If the kids want to be a tree, they can be a tree. If they want to identify as a horse, they can identify as a horse. The school says they are investigating and the teacher could face a federal probe from the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
South Dakota. Zero days without being a national embarrassment. Local teacher at the high school thought it was a good idea to hand this letter to several students. pic.twitter.com/BjnJx4dLdG— Lee Bruns (@RealLeeBruns) April 25, 2022
Mr. Hillesland should be commending for telling his students the truth. Boys cannot become girls. Girls cannot become boys. It’s a biological truth. Give the teacher a raise.
