Flaunting It for Social Justice
Jackson, Janna
Journal of LGBT Youth, v7 n4 p359-363 2010
By examining various movements in education in "Flaunt It! Queers Organizing for Public Education and Justice," Quinn and Meiners show a systematic and intentional "straightening" of American public schools. Throughout the book, the authors explore how various public and private realms operate to try to silence queer voices, and they discuss ways to counter this silencing. The book itself is divided up by the educational movements the authors have worked against to try to stave off the heteronormativity being perpetuated by the myths of school choice (Chapter 1), the erasure of social justice and queers in particular in a private entity that sets standards for teacher education (Chapter 2), the policies of exclusion of private schools (Chapter 3), the ways in which the teaching profession has been raced and gendered (Chapter 4), and the lack of attention to queer topics in teacher education programs (Chapter 5).
