Hidden, Invisible, Marginalized, Ignored: A Critical Review of the Professional and Empirical Literature (or Lack Thereof) on Gay and Lesbian Teachers in the United States
Duke, Thomas Scott
Journal of Gay & Lesbian Issues in Education, v4 n4 p19-38 2007
The author reviewed 22 articles published in professional journals related to the field of education that examined the experiences of gay and lesbian teachers and related services personnel. Ten of the 22 articles were legal analyses; five were position papers; four reported the findings of empirical research studies; three were anecdotal reports. Gay and lesbian educators have been largely excluded from empirical studies in school and classroom settings. The author recommended the development of a critical qualitative research agenda that examines the school-based experiences of gay and lesbian teachers and related services personnel.
