A teacher in the US state of Virginia has been fired, for refusing to use a transgender student's correct pronouns

The West Point Public Schools board said it made the "difficult decision" to dismiss Peter Vlaming last Thursday.

It said he was asked repeatedly over several weeks to address the student correctly.

The board said he consistently refused to comply, which was "a willful violation" of policy.
