Bathrooms, Sports, and Pronouns: The K-12 Binary

Last year the U.S. Department of Education expressed that Title IX includes children that are transgender. There has been many lawsuits regarding schools not following through with these regulations specifically in not allowing children to use the bathroom that would be designated for their gender. LGBT issues are becoming more and more prominent in schools in many different ways from sex-ed curriculum, to bathroom use, to sports teams and locker rooms. There is much gender divide that now needs to be revisited changed to become more inclusive. A proposed bathroom is one that is meant for individual children one at a time and is ADA compliant as well as for any student regardless of their gender.
