Transgender Youth and School Facilities

Cover of "Separation and Stigma"

Separation and Stigma: Transgender Youth and School Facilities outlines how excluding transgender students from the school facilities that match their gender is not only unnecessary but profoundly harmful. The report also examines the existing federal, state, and local landscape for transgender students and their ability to access facilities at school across the country. Specifically, this report examines:

  • Portion of transgender students affected by bullying, harassment, and discrimination
  • Consequences of limiting transgender students access to school facilities
  • Harmful state laws, district policies, and school practices
  • Ways in which states, districts, and schools are providing transgender students with equal access to education

This report was co-authored with the Movement Advancement Project (MAP) and in partnership with National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the National Education Association (NEA).
