3. Political correctness aside, the student was born male and has all the identifying features of a male. Do you feel this one student's rights supersede those of all the other students (especially the girls) who might find this situation quite uncomfortable?

4. According to the article, the school attempted a compromise by permitting the student to utilize his own, private, showering and changing facilities, but the "Office for Civil Rights of the Department of Education told the district that requiring a transgender student to use private changing and showering facilities was a violation of that student's rights." Do you agree?
