VDOE transgender policies
I fully support the policies that are proposed to protect and support transgender students in schools. Transgender rights are human rights. Every child deserves to feel supported, included and protected in school. There is no place for discrimination especially in schools. Students need to focus on thriving in academics and social interaction when attending school and this can only happen when they are not being threatened, bullied and targeted by people who do not understand or care about them. Teachers and administrators have a duty to represent every student not just the ones who identify as cisgender and heterosexual.
