Nichols, Sharon L.
Elementary School Journal, v99 n5 p505-19 May 1999
Contends that schools are obligated to address unique needs of homosexual youth because of their increased risk for suicide, abuse from peers, truancy, dropping out of school, and lower self-esteem. Proposes that schools develop a diversity room and have a diversity room specialist to meet needs of homosexual adolescents and to encourage a safe, accepting climate for all students. (Author/KB)
