OPPOSE as a scientist, mother and community member.
I don't see how these changes would help America, families or schools. Hiding situations from parents during a childs' transitory years would be defeating the foundation of what it means to be a family. If a home is to be built on trust, love and guidance, a school should not intervene and keep huge developmental red flags from parents. Red flags being wanting to be a different gender, risk for suicide, sharing bathrooms, distracting from curriculum/learning and overall drastic changes to the education system, as we know it. Furthermore, a child is developing and trying on new ideas and noticing what it means to be one sex or the other. With this vulnerable child development phases of industry versus inferiority or role versus identity confusion, a school is not the pillar for these children - the family is. Schools do not have the right to intervene and encourage new age philosophies. Transgender situations happen for a very small percentage (0.58% US 2016, World Population Review) of folks, so why subject the population at large to the challenges of a few? Also, a large majority of transgender individuals end up wanting to reverse their transformation. From a scientist perspective, your genes determine your sex. A man will not conceive and a women will not embody as much physical strength, naturally. Schools jumping into medical and political fields, will just leave resource-less education systems that much worse. People will pull their kids into private schools and/or move to more conservative locations; thus poor, physically stuck children will be jeopardized further from this experimental school situation. Don't let this happen. Preserve what American families and education systems have left. Oppose these drastic changes before it's too late.
