Dear “John”

Ms. Scholar at work.

Dear Ms. Scholar, I have a student who self-identified as the opposite sex to her assigned gender and who asked to be called “John” rather than “Jane.” What should I do?

Dear Confused about John, If you call your other students by their preferred names, call this student John. If you don’t, inform your student of your policy so he can change classes.

Yes, it’s that simple. – Ms. Scholar

If you have questions regarding teaching, student/faculty issues, or other comments/suggestions, please write to: Ms. Scholar c/o
