NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — After facing complaints that a third-grade transgender student was being discriminated against, a New Hampshire school district has agreed to let the student enroll at a new elementary school.
The agreement, first reported by The Telegraph of Nashua (http://bit.ly/RTxsRE), happened after the mother removed her son from a Nashua second-grade class during the 2011-2012 school year.
He wanted to dress as a girl and use a female name. The student, who wasn’t identified by the district or the newspaper, was initially accepted by the teacher and classmates and was allowed to use the girls’ restrooms. A parent complained. The child was ultimately separated from classmates.
Superintendent Mark Conrad said the district doesn’t discriminate against any student. The agreement states the student will be treated ‘‘the same as all female students.’’
