President Donald Trump’s administration formally rescinded past guidance on transgender bathroom protections in public schools.
Today, #protecttranskids is trending.
President Bbama instructed public schools that they must allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that align with a child’s chosen gender identity. The guidance was issued as an interpretation of Title IX , which prohibits sex discrimination in education.
The President does not believe the previous instructions are consistent with the language in Title IX. White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, said Wednesday that the administration’s actions would be in accordance with President Trump’s states’ rights stance.
