I strongly support this well-researched, evidence based proposal. Public education systems are entrusted to with responsibility to serve all of their students and provide responsive, inclusive, and safe learning environments. Uphold and step into this responsibility every second, everyday, every week, every month every year. Policies that actively support transgender students are positively associated with higher rates of school attendance, higher academic achievement, and improvements in both mental and physical health. There is clear research backing the fact that this policy would protect previously vulnerable students and create safer, more inclusive learning environments.
