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

Obama's Protections on Transgender Bathrooms in School

Per The Washington Post:

The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked federal protections for transgender students who sought the right to use the public school restrooms that match their gender identity…

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.

“This is an issue best solved at the state and local level,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said. “Schools, communities, and families can find — and in many cases have found — solutions that protect all students.”“Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “The Department of Justice remains committed to the proper interpretation and enforcement of Title IX and to its protections for all students, including LGBTQ students, from discrimination, bullying, and harassment.”

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.
