The Department of Education yesterday confirmed that it is no longer investigating civil rights complaints from transgender students who are not allowed to use restrooms that conform to their gender identity.  CNN reports that the Department, implementing its prior withdrawal of Guidance documents issued by the Obama administration, now takes the position that Title IX bars discrimination on the basis of sex, but not on the basis of gender identity. A spokesperson said that Title IX does bar discrimination against transgender students based on sex-based stereotypes, but that longstanding regulations provide that sex-segregated bathrooms are not discriminatory.
