Most Idaho Schools Ignoring New LGBT Policy Recommendations.

The AP (10/13, Kruesi) reports that earlier this year, the Idaho School Boards Association submitted a set of policy recommendations “on gender identity and gender expression protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.” However, “the majority of public schools in Idaho have not adopted” the policies. While a “handful” of districts have expressly rejected the standards, “many more have not even broached the issue while going through their annual policy updates.” Only one district has “included the new sweeping sexual orientation and gender identity protections against discrimination that apply to education opportunities, school-sponsored activities and specific situations involving bathrooms and overnight trips.”
