Beyond Bathrooms: The Transgender Student Experience

June 13, 2016 8:53

The battle over bathroom access for transgender students is heating up. The U.S. departments of Justice and Education issued a directive last month for the nation’s schools to allow students access to the restrooms, locker rooms, and sex-segregated activities that match their gender identities. Stuck in the middle of the legal battle are transgender students, who say that their needs at school extend well beyond bathrooms. Education Week Special Correspondent Yasmeen Qureshi profiles a transgender student who worked with educators at her Kentucky high school to create a welcoming environment for all students.
