The Legal Duty To Protect Gay and Lesbian Students from Violence in School.

McFarland, William P.; Dupuis, Martin

Abstract: Gay and lesbian youth are an invisible minority in schools. Since homosexuality has been viewed as an adult issue, many educators remain uninformed about the concerns of these students. Harassment or violence instigated by homophobic attitudes in schools teaches students intolerance of diversity. Several suggestions are presented on the ways counselors can address the rights of homosexuals in schools. (JDM)
