The Obama Administration has pressured a California school district to allow a teenage girl to use the boy’s restrooms and changing facilities.
The parents of the girl had filed a federal anti-discrimination lawsuit after their daughter was not allowed to sleep in the boys’ cabin on an overnight field trip to a science camp.
The U.S. Department of Education concluded that the Arcadia Unified School District violated federal gender discrimination statutes.
The U.S. Justice Department reached an agreement with Arcadia school officials under which the girl will have unrestricted access to the boy’s bathrooms, showers, and sleeping quarters.
Matthew McReynolds, attorney for the Pacific Justice Institute, says the new rules disregard the privacy and safety of children.
