Gender Reassignment Does Not, In Fact, Disqualify This Teacher From Working With Kids

Posted on 31 Aug 2010 at 1:44pm

Andrea (nee Walter S.), 58-year-old transgender Autrian woman, is not going to lose her teaching job because of gender reassignment surgery! The instructor wrote her students via email that when they returned in the fall, they might notice something different about her. But after an outcry from upset parents, the education ministry — part of the same government that created this stamp — has dismissed any notion that Andrea is unfit to teach just because she's changing genders. "Schools are home to tolerance, not discrimination," the agency said in a statement. That's not the only good news for Andrea.
