Texas AFT President Zeph Capo commented today on the House Public Education Committee rejection of SB 29, regarding trans youth participation in school sports:

We thank the members of the House Public Education committee for their votes today against SB 29, but still do not understand why some in the legislature would go out of their way to hurt anyone’s kids? We did the right thing today for all the children of Texas by standing up for trans kids.
