The Department of Education

Have you heard about the new guidelines from the Department of Education regarding transgender students? It's very exciting...

Section 31 of the Questions and Answers on Title IX and Single-Sex Elementary and Secondary

31. How do the Title IX requirements on single-sex classes apply to transgender students?

Answer: All students, including transgender students and students who do not conform to
sex stereotypes, are protected from sex-based discrimination under Title IX. Under Title IX,
a recipient generally must treat transgender students consistent with their gender identity
in all aspects of the planning, implementation, enrollment, operation, and evaluation of
single-sex classes.

And it applies to any elementary, middle, or secondary schools that receive public monies.

There's still so much work to do ~ and it's nice to post something positive.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.
