Gov. Cuomo Reassures Transgender New Yorkers Their Rights are Secure by Law

Posted February 25, 2017

In May 2016, President Obama and the departments of Education and Justice issued guidance to public schools that Title XI's prohibitions on sex discrimination meant trans students must be allowed to use facilities that match their gender identity.

New Jersey's largest teacher's union is calling for the state's Department of Education to keep protections for transgender students in place despite the Trump administration withdrawing Obama-era federal guidance that was issued past year.

Apple (AAPL) is leading the charge of Silicon Valley firms who have spoken out against President Donald Trump's decision to roll back federal protections for transgender students in public schools.

"And as Secretary of Education, I consider protecting all students, including LGBTQ students, not only a key priority for the Department, but for every school in America". The move followed a decision by North Carolina to prohibit transgender people from using the bathroom of their choice, a move that prompted dozens of companies to withdraw investment from the state.

Equality Ohio said the Department of Education has already been interpreting sex discrimination as inclusive of gender identity of transgender people.

Districts in the southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including Cherry Hill, have also enacted similar policies, though a comprehensive list of districts with such protections is not available.
