Mary Henning-Stout, Steve James, Samantha Macintosh
Abstract: School-based harassment and violence toward students perceived to be lesbian,gay, bisexual or transgender has been successfully confronted in educational systems across the U.S. A sampling of these programs and linked supportive organizations is presented.Three harassment-reduction programs are described in detail. Program-development and evaluation considerations derived from this review are summarized. While some institutional obstacles to such programming remain in these school settings, their models for protecting sexual minority students are supported by ethical, legal, and financial realities.
