Understanding and Supporting Trans Youth in Educational Settings

from 35.00

Course Description: Studies differ in the number of trans youth in our schools, but experts will tell you you've probably already had a transgender youth go through your school doors.

Transgender and gender non-conforming youth face a hostile terrain in schools and communities. According to the 2007 GLSEN report titled "Harsh Realities: The Experiences of Transgender Youth in Our Nation's Schools:"

  • Less than one-fifth of transgender students said school staff intervened most of the time or always when hearing homophobic remarks (16%) or negative remarks about someone's gender expression (11%).

  • Two-thirds of transgender students felt unsafe in school because of their sexual orientation (69%) and how they expressed their gender (65%).

  • Almost half of all transgender students reported skipping class at least once in the past month because they felt unsafe or uncomfortable.

This class will provide an in-depth opportunity to explore the meaning of a person's gender identity, how to best meet those challenges facing transgender and gender non-conforming students in schools, and critical legal information of which schools and communities need to be aware when working with this population.
