In Virginia, school policies on transgender rights vary widely. In Fairfax County, the school board voted last year to include transgender people in the category of those protected against discrimination. But in Gloucester County, the school board voted to ban a transgender student from using the boys’ restroom. The ban prompted a court case and a legal question that could have national implications. Does barring students from the bathroom of the gender they identify with violate Title IX? Kojo gets the update on that case and learns why school bathrooms are at the center of the national fight for transgender rights.
