Illinois district gives transgender students unrestricted access to locker rooms
A longtime debate in an Illinois school district over transgender access to school locker rooms has been decided in favor of transgender students.
The Daily Herald reports that the Palatine-Schaumburg High School District 211 board voted 5 to 2 to end a requirement that transgender students use privacy stalls when dressing in locker rooms.
