ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – An Albuquerque elementary school is raising eyebrows after an assistant principal told teachers to stop calling students “boys and girls.”

KOB-TV in Albuquerque reports a Carlos Rey Elementary School assistant principal sent teachers a letter ordering them to no longer refer to students as boys and girls starting this month.

The “Gender Identity Procedural Directive” also told teachers to eliminate gender in their classrooms.

Albuquerque Public Schools says the assistant principal made a mistake and she was immediately addressing the overreach.

The district says nowhere in their transgender policy does it say to not call students “boys and girls.”

Classes began this month.
