CASEStudents and Parents for Privacy v. United States Department of Education

Client Story


Share this page
Summary
Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Illinois, disregarded student privacy and safety when it secretly opened its schools’ restrooms to the opposite sex and then opened the girls’ locker room to a boy after the U.S. Department of Education threatened the district’s federal funding. The agency based its threat on its inaccurate interpretation of Title IX, a 1972 federal law that, contrary to the agency’s opinion, actually authorizes schools to retain single-sex restrooms and locker rooms.
