First the U.S. Department of Education sent guidance to schools across the country, pointing out how transgender students were to be treated.
Within months, several states sued, and a court blocked the implementation of the guidance--which said transgender students should be able to use bathroom and locker room facilities corresponding to their gender identity.
Now the Trump administration has chosen not to defend the Obama-era guidance in court. Which leaves anyone in school administration wondering what happens next.
Education departments in both Oregon and California are both keeping an eye on the situation.
