Texans First to Flush Obama’s Directive on School Bathrooms
May 13, 2016
President Obama’s new executive order ordering public schools to allow transgenders to use the bathroom with which they identify is already stirring emotions in statehouses and living rooms.
Reaction from Texas came fast and furious in advance of the directive being disseminated Friday to schools nationwide, The Washington Post reported.
“I got news for President Barack Obama,” Port Neches-Groves (Texas) Superintendent Rodney Canvass told local TV station 12News. “He ain’t my President and he can’t tell me what to do. That letter is going straight to the paper shredder.”
“This will be the beginning of the end of the public school system as we know it,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick told Dallas-Fort Worth TV station NBC 5.
