Transgender children face major barriers when trying to navigate the school system, such as accessing bathrooms, wearing gender-specific school uniforms and being accepted onto school teams. These teens find it harder to adjust to an educational structure which isn’t designed to accept their gender identities.  Carte Blanche asks whether schools are fully prepared to receive transgender children.
