    During their early years, children learn so much – discovering through play, starting to speak and learning to understand others. These skills are vital when they get into the classroom. But too many children are starting school without them, particularly boys and those growing up in poverty. Recent research conducted by Save the Children shows that boys in England are twice as likely as girls to fall behind by age five. Last year in England, 80,000 boys started school struggling to express themselves, speak in full sentences, or understand simple instructions from parents, teachers and friends. Many of these children never catch up, with potentially devastating consequences for their futures. As they get older, they can struggle at school, leading to poorer prospects in the world of work. As a country we need to give parents the right support to help children learn at home during these critical early years. High-quality childcare, delivered by skilled staff, has also proved to make a huge difference.

  • Allow transgender service members to serve openly and proudly
    The American Medical Association passed a resolution that said "there is no medically valid reason to exclude transgender individuals" from US military service. The ban on trans service members, as with other forms of discrimination against trans people, is based on incorrect and outdated medical rationale. The concern is that a person's gender dysphoria, a state of emotional distress caused by how the gender someone was designated at birth conflicts with their gender identity, could interfere with someone's ability to serve, since it can lead to severe depression and anxiety. But most medical experts today, including the American Psychiatric Association, agree that hormone therapy and other forms of care can treat those suffering from gender dysphoria. And not all trans people suffer from severe gender dysphoria in the first place. The Obama administration could overturn the prohibition on trans individuals without congressional consent, since the ban is attached to regulations, not law. The White House and Defense Secretary Ash Carter said in February that they're open to undoing the ban — although it's unclear what, if any, reviews of the broader policy are underway.
