Virginia Teacher Who Battled School Board Over Transgender Policy Tells CBN News: ‘I Learned to Trust God More’

Tanner Cross is speaking out after the school board of the Loudoun County Public Schools agreed to reinstate him.

During an interview with CBN News, Cross explained this is a major triumph for educators and people of faith.

“It’s a huge victory for me because Loudoun County Public Schools could no longer punish me for my speech I made back in May,” he said. “That should tell teachers if you want to go advocate for your students at a school board meeting and you think harmful ideologies are coming through your school board or maybe being implemented in your lessons, go voice your opinion. Use your freedom of speech, freedom of religion.”

Cross, who teaches physical education at Leesburg Elementary, sued the Loudoun school board over its new policy that includes requiring staff to call transgender students by their preferred pronouns.

He was quickly suspended last spring after publicly telling the board he would not comply with the policy.

Cross insists the rules go against his Christian faith and his First Amendment rights.
