President Donald Trump's withdrawal of the mandate for schools to allow students to use the bathroom of their gender identity is a win for families, according to the Family Research Council.

Council president Tony Perkins praised the announcement in a statement

"The Trump administration's reversal of this mandate on schools is a victory for parents, children, and privacy," he wrote.

"Today's announcement fulfills President Trump's campaign promise to get the federal government out of the business of dictating school shower and bathroom policies. The federal government has absolutely no right to strip parents and local schools of their rights to provide a safe learning environment for children," Perkins wrote.

"The persistence of parents" led to Trump's action, Perkins wrote.

"Parents refused to allow their child's innocence to be sacrificed on the altar of government imposed political correctness."

Perkins said President Barack Obama's administration set up the rule to force actions they knew families would not agree with.

"The Obama administration resorted to this coercive policy because they knew parents and schools could never be persuaded to force boys and girls to shower together, stay together on school trips, and use the same locker rooms and bathrooms," Perkins wrote.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said that Obama's action was "overreach," according to ABC News
