Appeals Court Upholds Florida School Board’s Bathroom Policy
(Worthy News) – A Florida school district’s policy that requires students to use bathrooms based on their biological sex is constitutional, according to a federal appeals court.
In a 7-4 ruling Friday, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta determined the St. Johns County School Board’s policy of requiring students to use bathrooms according to their biological sex, or a sex-neutral bathroom, was not a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause or Title IX federal regulations.
The lawsuit was brought by Drew Adams, a biological female who identifies as male. In 2015, Adams started ninth grade at Nease High School in Ponte Vedra, Florida, and wanted to use boys’ bathrooms. But under the school board’s policy, and after complaints by fellow students, Adams was told to only use the girls bathroom or a sex-neutral bathroom. [ SourceL NewsMax (Read More…) ]
