TOPEKA, Kansas — The Kansas Board of Education has voted to ignore the recent guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education, which require school districts to allow boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ restroom and vice versa.

The board concluded unanimously 10-0 on June 15 that local schools are best suited to decide how they will handle the issue of restroom use and other matters surrounding those diagnosed with gender dysphoria.
