Summary
In a book made especially timely by the recent suicides of several students who were gay (or perceived as gay), Beigel (law and education & information studies, UCLA) examines the problem of homophobia in US public schools. In clear and accessible language, the author examines the legal underpinnings of the right of gay students and teachers to be treated with dignity, and looks at school districts that have successfully implemented policies to protect that right in an educational context. Beigel also lays out, often graphically, the problems and dangers faced by gay students in particular, even in places (such as California) that are thought to be "gay-friendly." Particularly useful for educators, counselors, and members of the legal and advocacy communities, this book will also be of great interest to any reader concerned with equal access to education.
