Connecticut School Kept 11-Year-Old On Puberty Blockers Without Parental Consent

This isn't uncommon in the school.

What happened: A school nurse in Connecticut revealed on Facebook that an 11-year-old student at the school was on puberty blockers and that multiple other students identified as non-binary without parents being informed.

“As a public school nurse, I have an 11yo female student on puberty blockers and a dozen identifying as non-binary, all but two keeping this as a secret from their parents with the help of teachers, SSW [social workers], and school administration,” said the nurse.

“Teachers and SSW are spending 37.5 hours a week influencing our children, not necessarily teaching our children what YOU think is being taught.” The nurse was suspended for revealing the situation at the school despite not mentioning any students in specific.
