Hillsdale NJ, The Pascack Valley Regional High School District voted 6-1 to pass a policy they say is designed to protect transgender students’ rights. The district said the policy is needed to comply with anti-discrimination laws.

The policy allows transgender students to use restrooms and locker rooms based on their gender identity. Hummm what could possible go wrong with that ?

According to NBCNEWYORK The policy follows several other New Jersey school districts that have passed similar measures. But one school board member hinted the debate is far from over, saying he expects lawsuits to be filed against the district.

The meeting was the second time the proposal has been put up for a vote. The school board tabled the issue in February after parents and residents rightly voiced concerns.
