Creating School Climates That Foster Inclusive Community Attitudes toward Gender Nonconforming Students
Kurt, Layla J.
Journal of School Counseling, v15 n1 2017
Transgender students are a marginalized group of students who are calling for recognition and acceptance of their identities. Although Title IX assures students of freedom from discrimination based on sexual identity, many schools are struggling with policies that adequately provide these protections. Based on a previous qualitative study conducted by the author, this manuscript provides strategies that school counselors and other educators can implement to create a school climate that is safe, equitable, and fosters the well-being and success of transgender students.
