Meyer, Elizabeth J.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v83 n3 p89-95 2010

The purpose of this article is to offer readers an introduction to Canadian cases regarding teacher expression and sexual orientation and demonstrate how the application of a human rights framework can offer schools and educators an ethically sound and legally defensible way of approaching and resolving such controversies.
