Last week President Biden said prior to signing an executive order, “ Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.” He then proceeded to fulfill a campaign promise of reinstating the Obama-Biden guidance that Trump revoked and restored “transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms based on their gender identity. He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights.
Parents with children in public schools need to be aware of this change, but they also need to realize there is no federal law and no court decision that mandates that school districts make this their policy. None. Unfortunately, Biden is using the threat of removing federal funding from schools that don’t cooperate with his dangerous policy so most schools will just go along with it no matter the harm to students.
