Late Wednesday afternoon, the Washington Post reported that Obama’s protections on transgender bathrooms in school have been cancelled by Trump.
Per The Washington Post:

Per Fox News:
A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General’s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not “undergo any formal public process” or explain how the directive was “consistent with the express language of Title IX,” the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities.
Obama’s Protections on Transgender Bathrooms in School
While it appeared Obama passed legislation for transgender restroom protection in schools, nothing was officially filed. This should set a domino effect in motion that gets rid of transgender restrooms in public schools.
