Is there a correct gender-neutral, singular pronoun (“his” versus “her” versus “their”)? Is there a correct gender-neutral, singular pronoun (“his” versus “her” versus “their”)?

I remember reading that "their" is third person plural, not singular. If you are talking about a student, most people would say: "The student opened their locker". If "their" is plural, then you wouldn't be able to use it. If you can't use "their", what do you use?
