"The Department of Education is demanding that an Illinois school district allow a boy who identifies as a girl and plays sports on a girls team to have full access to the locker room and showers with the girls on the team.

The reason this is so wrong is because it violates the most fundamental implied contract between the government and parents with regard to the public school system. That contract is one that says, you(parents) give me(government) access to your children to educate them and I am worthy to be trusted with that most valuable part of your family - your child(ren).
That implied declaration of trustworthiness means that the government does not get to traumatize your child, nor encourage them in harmful behaviors, nor to use them for social experiments.
Telling girls that they must allow males to use ladies bathrooms is bad enough, but to say that males must be allowed to be naked in proximity to themselves while they are also naked or in various stages of undress is harmful.
It tells girls that they should disregard the feelings of discomfort that occur when another person is behaving in a way that is outside of the norms of that society. There is a good reason for those feelings of discomfort. It is to keep you safe.
When someone is behaving oddly, it is a signal that they may be mentally unstable or ill or about to engage in bad behavior. The natural impulse is to keep your distance from such people. And that's a good thing. Sure, artists play on such discomfort all the time, but schools are not meant to be social or artistic experiments. Because if they were, no one, except those who don't care about the mental health and well-being of their children would send their children there.
And that is the proper response for the parents of this school and all schools across the nation - keep your children home. Homeschool them, get them a tutor, send them to a private school that is segregated by sex, but do NOT allow the government to engage in social experimentation with your children.
And don't just vote with your feet on this one, because that will leave other children subject to being the victims of this egregious abuse of the population. Go to your local school board meetings, call your state and federal legislators and your mayor and your governor and demand that the government cease using children for their social experiments. It is unethical and abusive of children.
In fact, tell them the social experimentation is not the province of government at all, because it is not.
Call. Because if there are no consequences for bad behavior, the behavior will not change. But, before you call, call your school and let them know that your child will not be in attendance until you can be assured that they will be safe from being forced to participate in such madness. You are the first line of defense for your children. Failure to protect them from this is failure as a parent.
"23 Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living.
24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king.
25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.
27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof." ~1st Kings 3:23-27
