Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor has joined a national coalition of state attorneys general to oppose the Biden administration’s efforts to force schools to embrace transgender policies, including policies that grant male students access to girls’ restrooms.
“President Biden’s new guidance threatens to take away free and lower-cost meals from school children who rely on them for breakfast and lunch,” O’Connor said. “Biden is forcing his agenda down our throats. Picking on vulnerable children is shameful. These children need to eat. My office will continue to fight to protect our most vulnerable citizens.”
Under Biden, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has issued new guidance on sex discrimination for schools and programs that receive federal nutritional assistance, informing schools that the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has expanded its interpretation of the prohibition on sex discrimination found in Title IX to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
