As of Friday, February 15, 2013, Massachusetts’ Public Schools, K-12, officially requires every principal to allow transgender boys and girls to use the locker room, shower room, changing room and bathroom of their choice.

The decision was handed down last Friday, an it was issued in accordance to the 2011 anti-discrimination law that protects transgender people. Many say that by doing this it will help parents of children who are transgendered feel that their child is safe and welcome at schools.

One the other side, The Massachusetts Family Institute says that by allowing transgender students to use the bathrooms it endangers other students, and violates their privacy. They say that “boys need to the use the boy’s room, and girls need to use the girl’s room”.
