A battle is brewing over the use of a high school locker room by a transgender student

Students aren’t being treated equally in one high school locker room in Northwest suburban Palatine, according to the federal government.

The superintendent is defending the practice, even after the Department of Education said it violates anti-discrimination laws. Gretchen Hammond, senior reporter with the Windy City Times, walks us through the details of the story.
