    This article provides an analysis of teachers’ perceptions of and responses to gendered harassment in Canadian secondary schools based on in-depth interviews with six teachers in one urban school district.

O espaço escolar aparece aqui como uma poderosa instância de reprodução das lógicas homofóbicas. …
