Children are no longer to be referred to as “boys and girls.”

Now, they are “scholars.”

Because it’s more inclusive.

Or something.

Via Free Beacon.

A “transgender toolkit” for public schools in Minnesota advises teachers to call children “scholars” instead of boys and girls.

The guidelines were approved Wednesday by the “School Safety Technical Assistance Council” and will be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state. The toolkit attempts to “ensure a safe and supportive transition” for children becoming a different gender at school.

The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their “preferred pronouns” are….

“Schools should not assume a student’s name or pronoun,” the toolkit states. “School officials should ask the student and use the requested name and pronouns.”…

If a teacher calls a child by the wrong pronoun, he could violate the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, according to the guide.
Teachers also should avoid calling grade school children “boys and girls,” because the phrase is not “inclusive.”

“Teachers could address students as ‘students’ and ‘scholars’ to be inclusive as opposed to ‘boys and girls,'” the guide states.

Other tips include not picking a homecoming or prom king and queen—instead students should nominate “prom ambassadors,” “homecoming court,” or “homecoming royalty.”

The department explains, “Language around gender is evolving.”….

    If you’re just starting out in college, go into psychiatry kids! You will be employed for a VERY long time trying to straighten out what’s been done to the children of this country. How in the world is a country suppose to function turning this kind of stuff out of our schools???

    I do not think the ploy is intended to help. It is intended to confuse. The children are not supposed to function, except find themselves in mobs. Soon, the nation will be confused and not function, easy prey for tyrants.

    In my opinion, this has left the responsibility to parents to seek home schooling in order to keep their children from being taught gender confusing formats. One thing many parents are now discovering is that many children are oftentimes confused about their gender identity. The Mother and the Father have to be loving and kind in validating the sex of their child or children. Allowing children to ask the important questions is the key to raising healthy children. Similar to Roe versus Wade, children grow into adults and oftentimes regret the decisions of their youth. I advise careful observation and, scrutiny to those institutions who are trying these new ideologies regarding transgender identity. Since we have no scientific trials on the outcome of people with these issues, I am asserting that these are private issues which need to be addressed by families not educational institutions. Let’s focus on life saving issues which are crucial right now. The cure for H.I.V. aids, diseases and illnesses. Stop the socialist desire to destroy America, families, and institutions which have made our country great. Reverse these trends!
