Feds To: Chicago District - 30 Days to Change Transgender Student Locker Room Policy or Lose Federal Funds
The Daily Signal reports:
Uncle Sam isn't going to let schools place certain restrictions on how transgender students use a single-sex locker room.
A school district near Chicago, Palatine 211, provides numerous accommodations for transgender students. The district calls the students by requested names, honors selected gender (including allowing them to play on the sports teams of the gender they identify as belonging to), and permits them to use single-sex bathrooms, since stalls ensure privacy.
But the federal government has decided the district is still guilty of violating Title IX, the law prohibiting sex-based discrimination, over certain locker room restrictions.
