Education Policy: Issues Affecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth

This report provides a comprehensive overview of the school experiences of LGBT youth, and existing policy interventions aimed at making schools safe and affirming environments for all students. It also examines recent federal policy changes that complicate these efforts, and offers a research agenda to fill these gaps in our understanding of the experiences of LGBT youth and children of LGBT parents.

We are indebted to Sivagami (Shiva) Subbaraman of the Office of Human Relations Programs (www.ohrp.umd.edu/WE/) and the Office of LGBT Equity at the University of Maryland, for compiling this and other great LGBT resources for the NCDD website. LGBT is short for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender.
