  7. Homofobia e heterossexismo nas escolas: discussao da produçao cientifica no Brasil e no mundo

    A discussão acerca do papel da escola no que diz respeito à sexualidade de seus alunos tem sido objeto de debate crescente nas últimas décadas. O caráter normatizador das instituições escolares tem sido apontado por estudiosos do campo de estudos do gênero e sexualidade, tanto no Brasil como em outros países, onde tem sido ressaltada a produção de masculinidades e feminilidades não-transgressivas dos catálogos identitários reconhecidos socialmente. …

  8. Diversidade sexual na educação: problematizações sobre a homofobia nas escolas

    Este volume, o no. 32 da Coleção, propõe uma série consistente e articulada de reflexões sobre a produção e a reprodução da homofobia na educação, especialmente no contexto da escola e nos espaços ligados a ela. Rigorosa e minuciosamente examinada a partir dos instrumentos fornecidos pelas ciências sociais e humanas, a homofobia (compreendidas também a lesbofobia, a transfobia e a bifobia) evidencia-se como um grave problema social cujo enfrentamento não pode ser mais adiado. O espaço escolar aparece aqui como uma poderosa instância de reprodução das lógicas homofóbicas. …

  9. Social policy report: safe schools policy for LGBTQ students

    Two proposed U.S. federal laws would provide explicit protection for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) students in public schools. These federal laws follow actions by many states and school districts to define and implement laws or policies to protect the safety of LGBTQ students in schools. Research during the past decade has shown that LGBTQ youth are a vulnerable population, and that the negative school experiences of LGBTQ students often contribute to their vulnerability. …

  10. Bullying and homophobia in Canadian schools: the politics of policies, programs, and educational leadership

    During the past ten years, attention on bullying has intensified among educators, parents, journalists, and educational researchers in the wake of high-profile incidents of bullying in some Canadian schools. Safe schools policies and programs have proliferated as a result. However, the issue of homophobia - a pervasive form of bullying - tends to be absent from public discussion, anti-bullying programs, and so-called safe schools policies. This essay explores the politics of bullying and of related policies and programs. …
