Contagious Tolerance: Creating Safe Schools for Our Students
Jones, Joseph R.
Online Submission, Speech given at the closing ceremony of the Radford University Women's Program (Radford, VA, Mar 31, 2011)
This presentation is premised on a research study that was conducted with a group of secondary teachers. The study examined how teachers grappled with issues surrounding homophobia and heterosexism in their schools. For the purpose of this presentation, some of the findings from this study have been applied to the college campus. Specifically, the author argues that creating safe and tolerant college campuses involve: dismantling contextual oppositions, engaging in reflective practices and partnering with college administration.
