Arkansas teachers and staff would not be required to use the preferred pronoun under the proposed law



Little Rock, Arkansas – A bill that was submitted on Monday, February 20, would forbid public school staff from being required to use a person’s preferred pronoun.

HB 1468, filed by Rep. Wayne Long, District-39, states faculty members, teachers, and employees of Arkansas public schools, open-enrollment public charter schools or state-supported colleges or universities would not be “required to use a student’s or coworker’s preferred pronoun when referring to the student or coworker if the preferred pronoun is not consistent with the student’s or coworker’s biological sex.”
