Product Description

Supporting transgender children in school means far more than deciding which bathroom they use or on which sports team they play

The purpose of this book is to move beyond the unproductive and polarizing debates that occur over which bathroom/locker room transgender children should use or on which sports team they should participate. Aidan Key masterfully cuts through the misinformation and distractions to get at the only issues that truly matter—ensuring our children, all of our children—can count on a safe and welcoming learning environment.

Trans Children in Today's Schools provides an understanding of the internal and external variables that a trans child navigates as they explore their gender identity and the challenges experienced by these children and their families. Key explores the barriers encountered by schools as they attempt to create gender-inclusive environments, including the resistance of a misinformed society whose only framework of gender is one rigidly set in an only-male/only-female context. Listeners will come away with manageable, step-by-step pathways to support and include trans youth in our schools and communities. The book places these ideas—and the youth who embody them—in context within a society whose understanding and expectations of gender norms are at the brink of a paradigm shift.
