Support the transgender student policies
It is essential that children be able to learn without suffering discrimination or harassment. These policies will promote that critical goal. A recent study found that over 70% of gay or transgender kids received threats because of their identity; schools have a moral and legal obligation to protect their students from this kind of harassment at school. These policies are necessary. These policies lay out how schools can prevent gender-based harassment or address it effectively to support and protect students if harassment occurs. These policies will help transgender students feel safe and respected at school, which is necessary for them to have equal access to education.
