Single-Sex Schools Still Legally Defensible in Britain | National Review


A leading group of all-girls’ schools in England has updated its gender-identity policy to require pupils to be female according to their birth certificates. The Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) said that the decision was to protect their status as a single-sex institution under the U.K.’s Equality Act.

As more and more young people identify as transgender, headteachers and school boards will have to decide whether to base policies — including admissions policies – on sex or gender identity. In this instance, the GDST chose sex. Hopefully, their decision will encourage other single-sex institutions to do the same.
