CHARLOTTE COUNTY (FCV) – Amber Mercier, a Charlotte County elementary school teacher, said on TikTok that she would “rather lose [her] job” than provide parents with important information to the student’s emotional well-being.

“I just wanna go ahead and state that I would rather lose my job than out one of my students to their families,” she said.

“Being a safe person and a safe place for kids who don’t have that home is one of the best parts of being a teacher. So, yeah, I’m not doing.”

Mercier is referring to the now Governor Ron DeSantis-signed H.B. 1557, the Parental Rights in Education Act falsely called the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.”

The bill summary says that districts must notify student parents of specific information revolving around “critical decisions affecting students’ mental, emotional, or physical well-being.”

The aim of the law is not to target students or “out” children, but to protect students’ well-being and the right of parents to “make decisions regarding upbringing & control of their children.”
