Threatened with lawsuit, Wisconsin district cancels reading of book about transgender girl

MOUNT HOREB, Wis. - An southern Wisconsin elementary school cancelled a planned reading of a children's book about a transgender girl after a group threatened to sue.
The Mount Horeb Area School District released a statement Wednesday saying it will not proceed with its planned reading of the book "I am Jazz," the Capital Times reported. The district said it would give the Board of Education the opportunity to address a situation, for which the district has no current policy.
Last week, the principal of Mount Horeb Primary Center sent a letter to parents saying the book would be read and discussed because the school has a student who identifies as a girl but was born with male anatomy.
