Mom sues school district to stop transgender bathroom use
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida parent is suing to stop schools from allowing students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that align with their gender identities.
The Florida Times-Union reports that Wryshona Isaac filed the lawsuit against Duval County Public Schools on Tuesday. Isaac is the mother of four students who attend the schools.
The suit alleges the district is not providing a safe environment for Isaac's children.
School administrators announced Friday that they would comply with a directive from President Barack Obama's administration that public schools must permit transgender students to use facilities consistent with their chosen gender identity. A day earlier, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a civil rights complaint against Marion County Public Schools for limiting students to using bathrooms corresponding to their gender at birth.
