Letter: Bob Jensen, Leesburg

Regarding the federal government’s attempt to impose bathroom policy for transgender students, it is important to understand that the Constitution grants the federal government no authority over a local issue such as education.
Refusing the $16 million in Title IX funds (only 1.3 percent of the school budget) would maintain local control over all school issues and would be a perfect opportunity for teachers to instruct students in two of this country’s most important founding principles—Federalism and the 10th Amendment.
