KNOX COUNTY TRANSGENDER GROUP ASKING SCHOOL SYSTEM TO ADOPT POLICIES FOR TRANSGENDER CHILDREN

///
Comments are Off

A Knoxville organization is requesting the Knox County Board of Education to adopt and add into the school system transgender-inclusive policies. Voices for Trans Youth works with transgender students, their parents and supporters. The group wants all transgender children to be treated like any other child at school including allowing transgender children to choose which bathroom to use. The group also wants transgender children to be able to choose what sports team to be on and the locker room they would use. The group is also requesting the school system to call transgender children by their preferred name and pronouns. The Knox County school system is being asked by the group to modify a policy to include language that protects transgender, gender nonconforming and LGBT students from harassment, bullying, and discrimination.
