Miami-Dade Adds Transgender Protections To Anti-Bullying Laws

With new amendments to the district's policy, Miami-Dade School District has added transgender protections to its anti-bullying policy.

"Miami-Dade School District, the fourth largest in the nation, has added gender identity to their harassment and anti-bullying policy.

"Equality Florida along with and members of our Miami-Dade Safe Schools Coalition have worked for more than a decade to expand these vital protections and Miami remained one of the few large Florida cities without such a policy, until now."

This brings the number of students protected from bullying to 1.55 million in the state of Florida, representing 60% of the population.  Sweet!
