Under the new plan, a student who is male but identifies as female can use the girls’ bathroom and locker room, and vice versa. The policy also blocks parents from removing children from a classroom taught by a transgender teacher.
The only board member to vote against the policy, Elizabeth Schultz, joined Tucker Carlson on “Fox and Friends Weekend” to speak out about why she opposed the change.
“The question really comes down to whose agenda is this and what have we done about government overreach into local school boards across the United States of America,” Schultz said. “This apparently is being compelled upon us by the Office of Civil Rights through the U.S. Department of Education under the U.S. Department of Justice.”
She said that the notion that the government can reach into the 14,000 school districts across America and tell 90,000 school board members that they must comply or risk losing federal education money is “preposterous.” (Read more from “School Board Adds ‘Gender Identity’ Protections for Transgender Students” HERE)
