San Jose Unified makes it easier for boys meet girls

The San Jose Unified School District says it’expects to designate at least one gender-neutral restroom at each of its campuses and offices by the end of the calendar year.

The district’s Lincoln High paved the way for the move, when in April 2016 the school created more restrooms available to all genders.

Since then, students elsewhere have lobbied for gender-neutral restrooms. In addition, the state Legislature passed a law requiring that this year, single-user restrooms be designated as all-gender.

In the 2015-’16 school year, the school’s LBGTQ club had lobbied for more bathrooms open to all genders. Lincoln already had three, but that didn’t satisfy the demand for them.
