The Florida Department of Education is ordering schools to alert parents if their children are forced to use bathrooms with students of the opposite sex following allegations that a biologically male transgender student sexually assaulted a girl in a Florida public school bathroom.
"We find this allegation deeply disturbing and troubling. Clearly, if Brevard Public Schools had commonsense policies that separate bathrooms and locker rooms by biological sex at birth, this incident would not have been possible,"
Alex Lanfranconi, Director Of Communications at the Florida Department of Education, told The Daily Wire on Thursday afternoon.
"Unfortunately, some districts choose wokeness over the safety of their students,"
Lanfranconi said. "The Florida Department of Education will continue to take all steps within its power to protect parental rights and student safety by developing rules that will notify parents if their children are at risk of exposure to these types of situations."
