KS: Teacher wins $95,000 after school pushed her to protect students

“A retired Kansas teacher won $95,000 in a lawsuit against the Geary County school district after administrators attempted to force her to deceive parents about their student’s gender identity. Pamela Ricard, 58, argued that school administrators in Kansas had demanded that she use students’ preferred gender pronouns in classrooms, but avoid using those terms when speaking to parents. Ricard sued, arguing such deception was against her Christian beliefs. The district agreed to settle on Wednesday, and Ricard and her attorneys at the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) withdrew the lawsuit. ‘No school district should ever force teachers to willfully deceive parents or engage in any speech that violates their deeply held religious beliefs,’ ADF Senior Counsel Tyson Langhofer said in a statement.” (09/01/22)
