The Trump Administration removed an Obama-era policy that “allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity,” per Fox News.

This controversial bathroom policy caused a major stir late last Spring.

Check it out:

A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General’s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not “undergo any formal public process” or explain how the directive was “consistent with the express language of Title IX,” the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities.

“Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “The Department of Justice remains committed to the proper interpretation and enforcement of Title IX and to its protections for all students, including LGBTQ students, from discrimination, bullying, and harassment.”

A letter sent to schools nationwide Wednesday by the Justice and Education departments says the earlier directive caused confusion and lawsuits over how it should be applied. The new letter added that anti-bullying safeguards will not be affected.

This is a major victory for state’s rights.

It’s time to put the power back in the hands of the people.

  1. Good deal. Our schools don’t need Obama to tell them what to do.

    Don’t know if Betsy DeVos had anything to do with this Trump action, but I’m sure glad she’s there to NOT OPPOSE IT.

  2. About time ALL people are respected. No one should be forced to accept someone else’s belief. By demanding “rights” to choose which bathroom to use takes someone else’s rights away.

  3. There are bathrooms in the Nurse’s office. That would solve this instantly and without pain for anyone. Special Education kids use them all the time with no worries. It boggles me why this simple solution has not been tried.
