Transgender students protected:Dept of Education
The rights of transgender and gay students are protected at school by Title IX, President Joe Biden's administration said Wednesday, reversing Trump-era guidance that said those students were not protected by any federal laws.

The announcement from the Department of Education comes not only during Pride month, but also during a national debate over whether transgender girls should be allowed to compete in sports that match their gender identities. Such debates have prompted a wave of anti-trans legislation from GOP-led state legislatures.

“Today, the Department makes clear that all students — including LGBTQ+ students —deserve the opportunity to learn and thrive in schools that are free from discrimination,” Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said in a statement.

“The Supreme Court has upheld the right for LGBTQ+ people to live and work without fear of harassment, exclusion, and discrimination – and our LGBTQ+ students have the same rights and deserve the same protections."
