ACLU Comment on New Trump Guidance on Transgender Student Discrimination
WASHINGTON — The Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued new guidance on handling cases of transgender student discrimination.
James Esseks, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s LGBT & HIV Project, said:
“The Trump administration’s decision to revoke the guidance on Title IX and transgender students was a shameful move. That guidance provided clarity to schools, as well as to transgender students and their families.
“These new instructions from the Department of Education are far from clear, and federal court rulings are increasingly on the side of transgender students. The ACLU will continue to fight in the courts for the basic dignity and equality of transgender students.”
