“Regional news in the mid-Atlantic could have widespread implications for other states concerning restroom use by transgender students in schools. This week a federal appeals court ruled that a Virginia high school discriminated against a transgender teen by forbidding him from using the boys’ restroom. The student was born female but identifies as male, and was allowed to use the boys’ restrooms at school for several weeks in 2014. But following parent complaints, the school board created a policy that students must use either the restroom that corresponds with their biological gender or a private, single-stall restroom – stigmatizing alternatives. Now that the court has ruled in favor of the student, other states in the circuit (Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, and West Virginia) will be directly affected to follow suit, but the impact will likely be broader and represent a win for LGBTQ students.”

Uninsurance among Children, 1997–2015: Long-Term Trends and Recent Patterns, a new brief from the Urban Institute, examines changes in the share of children age 18 and under without health insurance between 1997 and 2015. It also explores the characteristics and health care experiences of the remaining uninsured children in 2014. We find that the uninsurance rate for children has fallen steadily since the introduction of the Children’s Health Insurance Program in 1997 and that uninsurance continued to drop following implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s key coverage provisions. However, some groups of children are disproportionately likely to be uninsured, and uninsured children face large gaps in health care access, affordability, and service use compared with their insured peers.
Adverse Childhood Experiences and Adult Well-Being in a Low-income, Urban Cohort, a recent article from Pediatrics, examines the association between adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and multidimensional well-being in early adulthood for a low-income, urban cohort, and whether a preschool preventive intervention moderates this association.
