The U.S. Education Department Office for Civil Rights (OCR) will be investigating a Connecticut school's transgender school athletic policy that allows males who claim to be female to compete against biological females, per Breitbart News.

OCR granted the request to the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a firm representing three female athletes, in a letter. The department will investigate the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), which allows male athletes claiming to be female to compete against female athletes.
