Massachusetts Education Policy Mandates Allowing Boys in Girls’ Restrooms
Malden, Massachusetts – The Massachusetts Commissioner of Education has released an outline of its new school policy regarding gender equality, mandating that boys be allowed to use girls restrooms and locker rooms — and vice versa — if they contend that they prefer to identify with the opposite gender.
The 11-page document, written by Mitchell Chester, is stated to be in response to a gender identity law that was passed last July in the state.
“This guidance is intended to help school and district administrators take steps to create a culture in which transgender and gender nonconforming students feel safe, supported, and fully included, and to meet each school’s obligation to provide equal educational opportunities for all students, in compliance with G.L. c. 76, §5 and the state regulations,” it states. WTF?
