Biden seeks to force the left’s transgender agenda on schools

President Joe Biden has made a series of proposals that would include transgender students among those protected by Title IX, the Daily Wire reports

The proposals were announced to the public on Thursday. And, the U.S. Department of Education indicated that it chose Thursday “in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Title IX.”

For those less familiar with Title IX, the Daily Wire explains that its original purpose was to protect educational access for women and girls. It does so by barring schools that discriminate on the basis of sex from receiving federal funding.

Over the years, however, Title IX has been used to protect other groups besides women.

The regulations

The proposed regulations amount to over ten. One proposed regulation, for example, would “protect LGBTQI+ students from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics.”

Similarly, another proposal would “require schools to take prompt and effective action to end any sex discrimination in their education programs or activities – and to prevent its recurrence and remedy its effects.”

And still, another proposal would “require schools to provide supportive measures to students and employees affected by conduct that may constitute sex discrimination, including students who have brought complaints or been accused of sex-based harassment.”

Breitbart News reports:

If implemented, all schools that take federal funding would ostensibly be forced to allow males claiming to be females into girls’ locker rooms and bathrooms and would force schools to allow males claiming to be girls onto girls’ sports teams.

Restoring “vital protections”

The Department of Education makes it clear that part of its goal, here, is to undo changes made by the administration of former President Donald Trump. The department comes right out and states that the new regulations will “restore vital protections for students in our nation’s schools which were eroded by controversial regulations implemented during the previous Administration.”

Perhaps most notably, the department’s proposed changes would change the way schools handle sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations.

Breitbart News explains:

. . . the new Biden rules that would severely weaken the rights of students accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by allowing colleges to refuse to allow students to cross-examine accusers and even refuse to hold live hearings on an accusation. In addition, the schools would have the right to investigate and punish students for incidents that occur outside school property where the school actually has no legal jurisdiction. Further, the school investigators will also be allowed to make a determination of the outcome of a case instead of just amassing the facts and evidence in the case.

What this all boils down to is Biden forcing the left’s transgender agenda onto our nation’s schools. The good news is that the regulations haven’t been implemented just yet, and if Republicans win back Congress in November, then these changes might never be made.
