Kansas Bill Targets Transgender Students

KSAL StaffMarch 26, 2016

Legislation in Kansas that would restrict how public schools and colleges accommodate transgender students is receiving national attention.

Under separate but identical bills before House and Senate committees, students would be able to collect monetary damages if someone was in what is deemed the wrong bathroom.

The bills are described as privacy protections for students and limit accommodations for transgender students. The measures say group bathrooms, locker rooms and showers must be limited to a single sex, and gender would be defined “by a person’s chromosomes.” If transgender students were discovered using group facilities for their identified genders, other students present can sue the schools and colleges.
