Pennsylvania School District Reverses Transgender Bathroom Policy After Student Protest

In a victory for the opposition to transgenderism, a school district in Pennsylvania caved to widespread student pressure and reversed a controversial policy on “transgender” students’ use of school bathrooms.

As reported by Just The News, the board of the Perkiomen Valley School District had voted last week to reject a policy that mandated students to use the restrooms that correspond with their actual biological gender. The measure, titled “Policy 720,” was defeated in a narrow 4-5 vote. However, after a mass walkout protest organized by students, board member Don Fountain changed his vote when the policy came up for a second vote, and it was passed by a 5-4 margin.

A father in the district, Tim Jagger, said that his daughter encountered a student in the female restroom whom she believed to be male. When he told her story, the board decided to take up the measure for the original vote. Following the board’s initial decision to reject the policy, student John Ott organized the massive protest.

“Kids were upset. Girls… we wanted to protect them,” said Ott in an interview. “They were upset. They didn’t want men in their bathroom.”

Jagger credited the success of the second vote with the student protest, saying “I believe it had to do with all the students and the students voicing their opinion.”

“That was huge, the student walkout that day and the community members coming through and talking at the board meeting, voicing their opinion,” Jagger added. “I believe that all this came together and worked on the school board members, and I was happy to see that they decided to change their policy.”
