As a teacher, I am trained to be transparent and open with parents, and I would not be able to do that in all cases under this policy. I am trained to address all bullying, and therefore enacting this policy is not necessary to prevent bullying. I am trained to help all students feel safe in the restrooms across the hall from my classroom. Enacting this policy will not make that possible when students are uncomfortable with opposite-sex peers choosing to use their restroom. Let us continue to focus on the business of education as a team of teachers, students, and families without interference from this bill.
