Amended California Education Code to ensure that schools respect the sexual identity of transgender students
Transgender students of primary and secondary schools in California may use the restrooms they want based on their sexual identity, and not to the one registered in their identity documents, under a new law enacted on Monday.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law amending the Code of Education schools throughout the wealthiest and most populous state in the U.S., to ensure respect for the sexual identity of transgender students.
The law, drafted by Rep. Tom Ammiano, ensuring in particular that ‘all students will be allowed to participate in the programs of non-mixed activities, such as sports, and use school facilities according to their sexual identity and not the gender identity card. “
Thus, transgender students may enroll in a sports team or female regardless of gender “administrative” or use the toilets they feel match their gender.
