Transgender Students in Schools in the USA

There’s an interesting new item at:

The article begins with:

In one short paragraph of a 34-page memo released on Dec. 1, the Department of Education articulated a clear stance on gender identity, saying transgender students in public schools should be enrolled in single-sex classes that align with how they live their lives day-to-day.

The memo is explicit that federal law protects students’ decisions made in accordance with their gender identity. “Under Title IX,” it reads, a school “must treat transgender students consistent with their gender identity in all aspects of the planning, implementation, enrolment, operation, and evaluation of single-sex classes.”

It is, I believe, good news for all people that have open minds and hearts.
