Students to use Restrooms Matching their Sex

As reported by the Associated Press today, US President Donald Trump will revoke federal guidelines enabling transgender students to use restrooms and locker rooms of their choice regardless of their biological sex. The reversal of this guideline, which was enacted under former President Barack Obama’s administration, will not effect other guidelines such as anti-bullying safeguards. Although proponents of the original guideline have said that it was necessary to prevent discrimination against transgender students, opponents have said that it was federal government overreach. President Trump has previously conveyed that transgender accommodations are an issue for individual states to decide and not the responsibility of the federal government.
