A few reasons why I oppose the transgender policies proposed by the VDOE
I comment today to strongly oppose the transgender policies proposed by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE). A few reasons why are:
- The model regulations infringe the First Amendment rights of parents to raise and care for their children.
- Schools should not be accommodating the especially harmful view that youth is an appropriate time to be encouraging, in some cases, irreversible “gender transitions”.
- Schools have a duty to protect the bodily privacy and dignity of all students.
The VDOE should not disregard the role of parents in public education.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my view and take care!
