Issues Affecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth
MetadataShow full item record
This report provides a comprehensive overview of the extent of anti-LGBT harassment and bias, its impact on students, policy interventions that support LGBT students and improve school climate, and the changing policy context that complicates these efforts. It includes an in-depth analysis of how the No Child Left Behind Act affects LGBT students. And it profiles eight young people who stood up to the abuse and discrimination so many LGBT young people live with on a daily basis; one payed the ultimate price, when she was killed in an anti gay attack. The report also articulates an agenda for future research and policy analysis.
