Meantime: A Brief Personal Narrative of a Trans* Teacher
Buterman, Jan
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n173 p28-49 Nov 2015
In the context of Alberta public education, teachers should not expect discrimination on the basis of gender identity. However, in practice, exclusionary behaviours towards people whose gender identity is different than the sex they were assigned at birth are frequent and may encompass any and all connected to the school environment including legislators, administrators, and students. In this brief personal narrative, I explore some unexpected moments of trans* exclusion, a gap between professionalism and practice that I describe as the "Meantime."
