Safe and Caring Schools for Transgender Students: A Guide for Teachers3 years ago 3 years ago Leave your thoughts
This toolkit was developed by the Society for Safe and Caring Schools & Communities.
HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
Students who experience discrimination, whether it is based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity or culture, have a legal right to be safe and protected in schools. This booklet is part of a Respecting Diversity Series of booklets that focuses on a variety of diversity issues as they affect students. The booklets are designed to help teachers obtain basic factual information, think about the issues, and learn strategies to help these students feel safe, cared for, and included.
The Society for Safe and Caring Schools & Communities and the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services at the University of Alberta believe student safety is a priority and that transgender students, or those who are labelled as such, are among the most at-risk group in schools.
