New Research reveals Paths to Implementing LGBTQ- Inclusive Lessons

San Francisco –A report released today by Gay-Straight Alliance Network examines the effectiveness of different approaches to implementing lessons that are inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) people. The findings illustrate the critical impact administrator support for LGBTQ-inclusive lessons can have, as well as the need to engage all stakeholders in the school community, from students to state education officials.

“This new research underscores the importance of LGBTQ-inclusive lessons in keeping all students safe and connected to school,” said Carolyn Laub, Executive Director of Gay-Straight Alliance Network. “Further, this report builds on that research to outline clear paths for students, teachers, administrators, and policymakers to effectively advocate for lessons that are factual and relevant to all students.”

Using a mix of quantitative and qualitative research, the report lifts up the experiences of students, documents various paths to implementation and their subsequent impact on student feelings of safety in three different schools, and examines lessons learned from earlier campaigns to implement ethnic studies curriculum. The report translates this research into an implementation action guide that contains clear steps for state policymakers, state education administrators, local district officials, teachers, students, and community members.  For More on this Click here.
