Abstract The US Department of Education and the US Department of Justice rescind Obama-era guidance finding that schools receiving federal funding were required schools to treat students in a manner consistent with their gender identity rather than their sex assigned at birth. This included allowing students to use bathrooms and locker rooms and participate in sports consistent with their gender identity.
