Late yesterday, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor reiterated that the injunction that stops Obama’s dangerous school bathroom mandate still applies nationwide. The Obama administration issued a “Dear Colleague Letter” in May threatening to take away school Title IX funding if schools did not allow boys into girls showers, bathrooms, and locker-rooms- “even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns.” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading a lawsuit of 13 states to stop the Obama administration’s attack on public schools and their misinterpretation of Title IX.
Texas Values President and Attorney Jonathan Saenz issued this statement,
“Texas will not back down on protecting the privacy and dignity of all students. We agree with Judge O’Connor’s order. The Obama administration made a choice to attack public schools nationwide, so that is why the injunction rightly applies nationwide. This injunction should give school districts like Dripping Springs ISD all the more reason to listen to parents and taxpayers about the privacy and dignity of students- not hide behind a lawless letter.”
The Dripping Springs ISD School Board will meet again on October 24th.
