Beyond Tolerance: A Resource Guide for Addressing LGTBQI Issues in Schools

Teaching Guide. Published by New York Collective of Radical Educators. 2010.
A curricular resource guide on Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual, Questioning, and Intersex (LGBTQI) for educators.

Themes: LGBTQ

Often, teaching about LGBTQI issues in the classroom is complex and unique — fraught with a variety of fears and uncertainty including fear of retribution and backlash from students, families or administration. But as educators, we must teach these issues because we know it is what is right — as individuals committed to social justice; as LGBTQI-identified educators; for the LGBTQI students we meet; and because we know too clearly what the outcomes are when we don’t.
