Strongly Support as an education professional
I believe that every student deserves equal access to a safe and nurturing learning environment. We know many trans students are not afforded this experience. School needs to be the environment that protects every student (especially those who have experienced more marginalization) and for all students to learn how to be healthy citizens, to respect others who are different. This bill is the bare minimum for every school district to have in their policy. It is important even further, for specific more detailed strategies to be put into individual district policies for trans students.
