A private school in Massachusetts that serves children from pre-Kindergarden to 8th grade is offering scholarships to “gender-creative” children who may be transgendered. They are trying to help those who are “transitioning” from one sex to another.
As more states are mandating bathrooms and locker rooms for kids that do not identify with traditional genders, the rise of neutral accommodations is rising. Massachusetts established such a law in 2013. Center School is taking it up a notch by offering scholarships specifically for those children who claim to be transitioning.
“Our school has a social justice mission,” Charlie Spencer, the head of Center School, tells The Republican. “And we were increasingly concerned about the high rate of suicide among gender non-conforming kids.”
