After a meeting that lasted several hours, the Ohio Board of Education now plans to vote in October on an amendment that says biological sex is not arbitrarily assigned at birth and is an unchangeable fact and opposes proposed federal Title IX changes.

More than 60 people testified at the meeting, which lasted well into the late afternoon, with the majority opposed to the resolution that also would require the state superintendent of schools to send a letter to all schools that receive federal funds urging them to not set up policies that align with the proposed federal guidelines.
