Resolution on Strengthening Teacher Knowledge of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Issues
English Journal, v98 n4 p14 Mar 2009
The policies of the National Council of Teachers of English have always supported fair and democratic schooling in a diverse society. The 1999 NCTE Resolution on Diversity calls on the Council to "affirm, seek, and encourage all teachers to include a diversity of perspectives, cultures, aesthetic responses, and experiences in the teaching and learning of English language arts." In the last decade teacher preparation programs have included more discussion of diversity issues. These discussions, however, typically omit or give only cursory attention to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues, even though people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities belong to all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and ability groups. This article presents a resolution on strengthening teacher knowledge of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues.
