Jay P. Greene is a senior research fellow in the Center for Education Policy at The Heritage Foundation. At Heritage, Jay conducts and disseminates research on the key issues facing education today, including the cultural, civic, and economic implications of how education systems are designed and implemented. He is one of the country’s leading experts on education policy, with highly influential research on a broad range of topics.
Jay joins Conduit to discuss the federal lawsuit over Arkansas’ Save Adolescents From Experimentation (SAFE) Act, which protects children from sex-reassignment procedures, puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones.
Jay provides insight into a recent study he published, “Puberty Blockers, Cross-Sex Hormones, and Youth Suicide.” He found that lowering legal barriers to make it easier for minors to undergo cross-sex medical interventions without parental consent does not reduce suicide rates—in fact, it likely leads to higher rates of suicide among young people in states that adopt these changes.
