Biden Officially Proposes Extending Title IX To Transgender Students

The proposed change would “protect LGBTQI+ students from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics,” the Department of Education said in a statement.

The department proposed the Title IX change on the 50th anniversary of the civil rights law, which bars schools that receive federal funding from discriminating on the basis of sex. When Title IX was passed half a century ago, it was meant to protect the rights of women and girls in educational settings.
