CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District addressed transgender issues in their new recommended policies.
The recommendations ask principals to implement and enforce ways to reduce bullying.
If implemented, the policies also would allow transgender students to take part in extracurricular activities and overnight trips with the gender they identify with.
The policies also asks school officials to stop referring to children as boys and girls, and instead refer to them as students and scholars.
Members of the North Carolina Values Coalition called the rules radical, and said the policies take the focus off of education and puts it on “gender fluidity.”
