Overview

Diverse Sexuality and Schools: A Reference Handbook is an eye-opening report on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth in our schools—the isolation they feel, the hostilities they face, their unique developmental and emotional needs, and the innovative ways schools, communities, and organizations are working to support them.

Author David Campos offers a compelling, often harrowing, tour of the lives of GLBT students, including what researchers have learned over the past half-century and what the schools, the courts, and the government are doing to keep them safe regardless of their sexual orientation. But perhaps the book's greatest impact comes from the way Campos gives voice to this often neglected population, providing a forum for these students' painful testimonies of harassment, violence, and despair.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Part of the Contemporary Education Issues series, which is concerned with how schools' curricula and organization are affected by current controversies, this excellent handbook focuses on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (GLBT) youth … Outstanding bibliographies and chapters devoted to print and nonprint resources and advocacy organizations, associations, and government agencies enable readers to acquire more information. For the wealth, scope, and accessibility of information it provides … should be added to every academic library's education reference collection."
