Texas School District Adopts Transgender Guidelines Without Parental Approval

Source: Daily Signal | May 11, 2016 | Leah Jessen

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has called for school superintendent Ken Scribner’s resignation after Scribner adopted new transgender student guidelines for his district, without the input of parents, school board members, and others in the community.

“The district did not seek any public comment or input from parents or the public,” Fort Worth resident Julia Keyes, a 35-year-old mother of five children, told The Daily Signal. “The board did not even get to vote on the policy.”

The new guidelines, approved April 19 by Fort Worth Independent School District Superintendent Kent Scribner, allow students to use the male or female restroom of their choice. Scribner announced the guidelines April 26 at a school district board of trustees’ meeting, according to the Texas Tribune.
