WV AG Reaffirms Advice to Local Schools Against Obama’s Transgender Directive

August 25th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey this week sent letters to state and county education officials to reaffirm that no school is legally obligated to heed President Obama’s transgender school directive.
“No school is under any legal obligation to obey this federal mandate,” Attorney General Morrisey wrote. “As your Attorney General, I am committed to fighting the President’s unlawful overreach and to defending our schools’ authority over their own policies. My Office will continue to push for a permanent victory.”
The letter, addressed Wednesday to the state’s Superintendent of Schools, Department of Education and county boards of education, updated officials on two significant victories against the federal government’s unlawful attempt to threaten funding for local schools that refuse to admit students to the bathrooms, locker rooms, dormitories and athletic teams of their choice.
