In support of transgender children and their right to an education
This guidance will be a critical step in ensuring that transgender children have equal access to education.
As the aunt of two young children living in Virginia, my hope is that if they come out as transgender, their schools will be as supportive as their aunt.
Protecting children from bullying and harassment, protecting their privacy and confidentiality, and allowing them to fully participate in school activities are all critical. I am looking forward to seeing these protections implemented to protect transgender children and ensure that they too can receive an education.
