From the New York Times:
The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
A letter to school districts will go out Friday, fueling a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education Department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.
It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
Leave it to President Obama to force local parents to have to abide by the moral decisions of one man — him. How such a sensitive matter could not be a local issue I have no idea. But, there you go. If you’re a parent and you don’t want your sixth grade middle school girl to see an eighth grade boy naked, well, screw you.
I’d say it’s time to get that private school voucher bill moving again . . .
