"Just Like the Other Boys": Meeting the Needs of Gender Diverse Students
Croteau, Susan M.; Lewis, Katherine
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v19 n4 p102-113 Dec 2016
Gary Armstrong, assistant principal, is faced with a delicate situation. The elementary school recently enrolled a transgender student, and the principal, Amy Lamar, is resistant to considering the student's unique needs. This case was developed for use in a leadership course. Instructors can use the case to encourage dialogue around legal frameworks, roles and perspectives of key characters, and theoretical perspectives informing decisions and policies. The four activities and discussion questions are designed to guide students in analyzing the scenario. The final activity involves comparing the scenario with a similar case with a different context and disparate outcomes.
