Feds Force IL School District To Allow Confused Boys To Shower With Girls
Facings federal threats of lost millions in funding for the children of taxpaying parents, a school district in the suburbs of Chicago voted on Thursday to allow a male high school student who dresses like a girl and otherwise identifies as female to use the girls’ locker room and shower there.
The student will use a separate, semi-private area in the girls’ locker room of his public high school.
The settlement between the U.S. Department of Education and the school district — the largest in Illinois — provides that the male student can use girls’ locker rooms as long as he changes in changing stations described as private, according to a Department of Education statement.
The feds have also deigned to allow the district to install curtains in the girls’ locker room for use by any actual, biological girls who want privacy.
The district must also arrange for the male student to have access to female bathroom and changing facilities at all district-sponsored activities off-campus activities and must create a “support team” for this one student to ensure he is happy.
The Education Department statement, which consistently identifies the male student with female pronouns, lauds the settlement agreement.
