Biden Administration Proposes New Protections for Trans Students

The Biden administration proposed new changes to Title IX that would protect transgender students from discrimination by schools, colleges, and universities.

“I am committed to protecting this progress and working to achieve full equality, inclusion, and dignity for women and girls, LGBTQI+ Americans, all students, and all Americans,” President Joe Biden said in a statement.

U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said the Department of Education’s “proposed changes will allow us to continue that progress and ensure all our nation’s students – no matter where they live, who they are, or whom they love – can learn, grow, and thrive in school.”

“We welcome public comment on these critical regulations so we can further the Biden-Harris Administration’s mission of creating educational environments free from sex discrimination and sexual violence,” Cardona added.

The Department of Education said that the changes would require educational institutions to “respond promptly to all complaints of sex discrimination with a fair and reliable process that includes trained, unbiased decision-makers to evaluate the evidence.”
