Silence Is the Voice of Complicity: Addressing Homophobia in Schools.

Jennings, Kevin

Abstract: Surveys of students in two private schools in northeastern states showed that antigay bias is pervasive (beginning with middle schoolers), involves mostly boys, arises in unstructured spaces, and is frequently overlooked by teachers. Schools considering interventions should recognize the import of sexual identity and respect, set precedents, and abolish silence. (MLH)
