The Minnesota Department of Education approved a “transgender” toolkit for the state’s K-12 public schools. The toolkit directs that “transgender” students be allowed to use the bathroom and locker room of their choice, sex-identifying nouns and pronouns be eliminated, the homecoming king and queen be referred to as “prom ambassadors,” students be encouraged to dress to express their gender identity, and students be allowed to share hotel accommodations on school trips with their preferred gender identity.
“Though 67 Minnesota legislators authored a letter urging decision makers to prevent approval and distribution of the toolkit, they were ignored,” said Meredith Campbell, policy director for Minnesota Family Council. “This irresponsible, disrespectful decision to ignore legislators’ recommendations is shocking, especially being that gender nonconforming issues remain unsettled in science, the courts and the Minnesota legislature.”
In a related note, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie this week signed into law a bill that will require the Commissioner of Education to develop guidelines for school districts regarding “transgender” students.
