DeSantis says Florida ‘will not comply’ with Title IX changes

by ian


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is rejecting President Joe Biden’s expansion of Title IX, which now includes protections for LGBT students. DeSantis released a video yesterday saying Florida will not comply.

Biden’s education department announced the changes last week – expanding Title IX protections to include gender identity. For example, it could now be considered discriminatory to deny transgender students access to the bathrooms of their choice. Along with Florida, Oklahoma has also announced plans to challenge the rule.
