The Obama administration issued a directive this morning to all U.S. public school districts, requiring them to allow transgender students to have access to bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond to their gender identity, rather than their birth identity. The Departments of Education and Justice Department instructed schools to abide by transgender students’ identity, rather than their birth records. This adds fule to the escalating debate over transgender rights in response to the North Carolina passed a law mandating that only the bathroom matching birth sex can be used by transgender students. The decree will mean potential loss of funding for any schools that go against the order.
