Pourquoi les enjeux LGBT importent dans le domaine de l’éducation
Keynote conference, Unite in Diversity: LGBT, Indigenous Peoples’ and other Minority Rights; 7 th Congress, Education International, Ottawa, Canada, July 19, 2015
The author analyzes how three dimensions of the school system: school climate, formal curriculum and teaching practices influence the school experiences of LGBT youth. Rendering schooling more inclusive and less discriminatory implies understanding and taking action on each of these dimensions. The arguments are organized in three angles : Angle 1. The truth about homophobia and gender-based violence in education; Angle 2. LGBT-inclusive education; Angle 3. Teachers dealing with sexual diversity.
