Judge Orders Teacher who Denounced School’s Proposed Transgender Policy to be Reinstated

Leesburg Elementary School physical education teacher Tanner Cross addresses the School Board at its May 25, 2021 meeting.

A Virginia judge has ruled a physical education teacher be reinstated to his Virginia elementary school position after being placed on leave following a speech in which he denounced proposed school policy on gender.

Twelfth Circuit Judge James E. Plowman ruled in favor of Byron “Tanner” Cross, and ordered Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) to reinstate Cross to his position at Leesburg Elementary School.

Judge Plowman granted a temporary injunction allowing Cross to continue his job until Dec. 31, at which time, unless other orders have been made, the injunction will dissolve.

Cross was placed on temporary leave after he disputed the proposed school policy on gender pronouns, one that requires faculty to address transgender students by their chosen pronouns. Cross said he could not comply because to do so would violate his beliefs.
