Parents in a Colorado school district expressed outrage after a report said the local teachers union sent out an email to its members instructing them to get rid of evidence of students' transgender information, according to a CBS report.
The Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA) email explained to teachers that if they surveyed students on their gender identities, that information should not be stored in records, in a CBS report headlined, "Controversy erupts in Jefferson County after the teachers union tells educators to destroy evidence of student surveys regarding gender identity."
The email said, "if you do a questionnaire, please make it a paper and pencil activity - any digital records are more permanent and may be requested under federal law."
Under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents have the right to inspect and review their student's education records maintained by a school......
"I don't feel I can trust the teachers," she said. "This is not political. It's just they're breaking the law.".....
The union released a statement to CBS: "By allowing students an optional avenue to share their preferred pronouns while maintaining student privacy, we can better ensure that students feel safe, respected, and validated."
"We encourage and support educators to follow Jeffco's district policy which states: School staff shall not disclose information that may reveal a student's transgender status to others, including parents and other school staff, unless legally required to do so or unless the student has authorized such disclosure," the statement continues. "Transgender and gender-nonconforming students have the right to discuss and express their gender identity and expression openly and to decide when, with whom, and how much to share private information."

And throw into prison for a very long time!
Sounds like they are instructing them to violate the law.
Time for some “educators” to suffer some very serious beat downs.
Hopefully behind bars!
Commie Homo teachers destroying the Evidence to hinder investigation and prosecution.
In Colorado they feel they have political cover from the Guv, Legislature, Courts, and Media.
If this were so morally correct and awesome, why hide it? Arrest them all.
When the law is Merrick Garland, as a Democrat bureaucrat, you can do anything you want. Just swear you didn’t. That’s good enough for him.
>> to hinder investigation and prosecution.
Unfortunately, there’s no mechanism for that.
“Transgender and gender-nonconforming students have the right to discuss and express their gender identity and expression openly and to decide when, with whom, and how much to share private information.”
False. Children have no right to keep “private information” from their parents.
True, however the Homo/Tranny advocates (pretty much ALL Teachers Unions and most Teachers) are anticipating a rightward direction from Parents and the American public.
I would have more sympathy for teachers if they weren’t trying to be SJW’s and hide things from parents. They’ve brought an incredible amount of heat upon themselves by their actions.
Definitely. It’s good the parents are demanding changes
Parenting isn’t just power over children, but also responsibility.
If school districts and teachers want to play parent in place of parents while playing God, they should be held liable for damages if children later decide they were coerced into damaging themselves.
collusion, CONSPIRACY!!! democRATS, feh...
No in public.
Another reason to HOMESCHOOL....
