Education Sec: “Don’t Say Gay” May Violate Title IX

From Education Secretary Miguel Cardona:

Parents across the country are looking to national, state, and district leaders to support our nation’s students, help them recover from the pandemic, and provide them the academic and mental health supports they need.

Instead, leaders in Florida are prioritizing hateful bills that hurt some of the students most in need.

The Department of Education has made clear that all schools receiving federal funding must follow federal civil rights law, including Title IX’s protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

We stand with our LGBTQ+ students in Florida and across the country, and urge Florida leaders to make sure all their students are protected and supported.
