WSOC-TV is reporting a North Carolina school system presentation to principals and counselors is recommending that kids are not referred to as boys and girls, but instead as scholars and students.

Doing away with boy and girl references is one of many policies included in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bully prevention regulations.

One policy allows students to participate in extracurricular activities and overnight field trips based on their gender identity.

The "Supporting Transgender Students" presentation also suggests evaluating gender-based activities and "maintain only those that have clear and sound pedagogical purpose."

The North Carolina Values Coalition calls the rules radical.

"School is no longer about reading, writing and arithmetic. It is now about gender fluidity," Tami Fitzgerald of the NC Values Coalition told WSOC.

A protest against the recommendations is being organized and is set to be held before the school board meeting on Tuesday.
