I strongly support changing guidelines for schools regarding how to treat transgender and genderqueer students. I'm a student in a very conservative town, and unfortunately LGBTQ+ students, especially those who are trans, are often bullied and mistreated by other students and staff. Having measures in place to protect trans students and help administration create a safe learning environment for them would be very beneficial. About 75% of transgender students feel unsafe at school. Over half of transgender teens consider or attempt suicide. Trans students need and deserve a learning environment that will help them grow without being discriminated against by their peers, teachers, and school.
