Calling the White House “misguided,” Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding New York’s school districts ignore the Trump administration’s lifting of protections for transgender students using school bathrooms.

Cuomo sent a letter to the state’s education commissioner. He says the direction he gave two years ago hasn’t changed: transgender students don’t have to use bathrooms based on their sex when they were born.

Cuomo told reporters “the federal action has absolutely no force or effect in the state of New York.”
