Victory for Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming Youth in California Schools!
Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law AB 1266, which is a further extension of civil rights to transgender and gender-nonconforming students.
Here’s what you need to know, quoted directly from the bill itself:
“Existing law prohibits public schools from discriminating on the basis of specified characteristics, including gender, gender identity, and gender expression, and specifies various statements of legislative intent and the policies of the state in that regard. Existing law requires that participation in a particular physical education activity or sport, if required of pupils of one sex, be available to pupils of each sex.
