Ohio Board Of Education Votes To Reject Federal Protections For LGBTQ Students

(ONN) – The Ohio Board of Education passed a resolution regarding new, mandatory Title IX requirements from the Biden administration.

The resolution rejects President Biden’s amendment to Title IX designed to protect LGBTQ students from discrimination.

The resolution also requires school districts to tell parents when their child questions their gender identity or wants to be identified by another name or pronoun.

The board of education vote was 10-7 in favor of the resolution to opt out of the new requirements.

The vote came after months of debate and personal testimony from the public.

The Ohio Board of Education will now send a letter to school districts saying it opposes the Biden Administration’s plan to add LGBTQ protections into Title IX.

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in schools that receive funding from the federal government.
