School district keeps transgender bathroom policy despite sexual assault of minorDECATUR, Georgia (Alliance Defending Freedom) – The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (DOE OCR) has announced that it will investigate a complaint that Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) attorneys, along with a local family law attorney, filed against the City Schools of Decatur on behalf of a kindergartener who was sexually assaulted in her school bathroom.
The complaint (a one-page summary of which can be read here) explains that the school’s new transgender restroom policy opened the door to the assault of a 5-year-old female student by a boy in the girls’ restroom at her elementary school.
“This situation was both deeply tragic and avoidable,” said ADF legal counsel Christiana Holcomb. “Schools have a duty to protect the privacy and safety of all students and Decatur Schools clearly failed this young girl. The current approach that many schools are taking of passing these transgender bathroom policies isn’t working; they fail to provide basic privacy or ensure the safety of all students.”
Disgusting, what is wrong with these liberal types? To continue with the same flawed system is also deeply worrying.
