As it is now, transgender students face a myriad of issues in school, such as harassment by students and inadequately developed resource programs. As a student myself, I have seen the struggles my friends encounter daily. Since many staff may not now how to properly treat or interact with a transgender student, I believe that model policy is absolutely necessary in helping improve the treatment of these children in schools. Trans students, and every student in general, deserve an education that is enjoyable and free of harassment. It is difficult to develop a love of learning if your place of learning is not a welcoming environment for you.
