Lakota parent on transgender vote failure: Not going away
Anne Saker, Cincinnati.com - 11 December 2017
"Unofficially, transgender students in Lakota Local Schools can use the bathrooms that align with their gender identities. But a sharply divided school board has voted down an effort to write a formal policy, saying it needs more time to pick the right words that would govern in the state’s eighth-largest school district.
Dozens of white-clad supporters of a written policy packed the Thunderbird room at the district’s central office at Monday night’s monthly board meeting to urge the five members to vote yes. Parents and friends of transgender students spoke out that it wasn’t enough for Lakota students to rely on the goodwill of teachers and administrators."
