Parents Navigating Schools: Panel

When parents of a transgender or gender-diverse child approach school administration looking for support and inclusion, administrators without appropriate training or resources often look back to the parents as their primary source of education. This can place both parent and child in a vulnerable position and exacerbate the school’s inability to fulfill its responsibility. Hear from a panel of parents about their experiences navigating schools—what worked and what didn’t—and learn how we as educators and administrators can better serve all students with regard to gender.
