Diaz, Elizabeth M.; Kosciw, Joseph G.; Greytak, Emily A.
Prevention Researcher, v17 n3 p15-17 2010
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students often face challenges that prevent them from developing a sense of connectedness to school. Many LGBT youth attend schools that are unwelcoming or even overtly hostile. For any student, being victimized at school can negatively impact their sense of school connectedness. This article discusses the school experiences of LGBT youth and its impact on their feelings of school connectedness. Then research findings on the relationships between connectedness, in-school victimization, and school-based supports for LGBT students are discussed. It concludes with a discussion of the implications of these findings for educators and other community members. (Contains 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
