Transgender bathrooms: Trump administration reverses Obama policies
Associated Press, CBS - 6 Mar 2017
"President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday reversed Obama-era policies requiring that public schools allow transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity. It will now be up to states and school districts to interpret whether federal sex discrimination law applies to gender identity.
A letter sent to schools nationwide Wednesday by the Justice and Education departments says the earlier Obama directive caused confusion and 'significant litigation' over how it should be applied. The new letter says the guidance is lifted 'in order to further and more completely consider the legal issues involved.'"
