A group of parents are calling for the resignation of school officials who created a policy of accepting transgender applicants at an all-girls school in Tennessee.

“We are writing to you today as an expression of a belief that the Harpeth Hall Board of Trust and the school administration has been more focused on political activism than on educating our girls,” said the letter from parents, according to Fox News. “Current events are simply a symptom of that activism.”

The letter comes on the heels of a new policy from the Harpeth Hall school changing its “gender diversity philosophy” and explaining that students who “identify as a girl” can apply to become a student.

Per Fox:

The letter from parents, donors and alumnae went on to criticize the way the school handled communication of the updated policy, saying it “repeatedly seek[s] to divide us and fragment us with one-way, filtered zoom calls in which you push only your message – failing to answer many important questions of your stakeholders.”

The authors of the letter also said the school did not provide a town hall forum, which was “requested by more than 1,000 members of the Harpeth Hall community.”

“We call today for the resignation of members of the administration board who have been proponents or enablers of political activism and division,” the letter continued, calling specifically for the departure of the board chair and executive committee, among others. “We will withhold all financial contributions to the school until this action takes place.

The school traces its history back to 1865. Recent famed graduates include actress Reese Witherspoon and singer Amy Grant.
