US Dept of Education Refuses to Investigate Trans Bathroom Civil Rights Claims

In February 2018 the US Department of Education confirmed that it no longer investigates transgender bathroom discrimination claims. With no outlet under federal law to combat discrimination, transgender students may be forced to use bathrooms that match the gender on their birth certificates rather than their gender identity. This leaves students vulnerable to bullying and even violence. The lack of protection under federal law leaves trans students unequal.
