New Partnership to Broaden Inclusion of LGBT Awareness in Teacher Preparation

AACTE has formed a new partnership with the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network and the Association of Teacher Educators to support teacher preparation programs in including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues in their curriculum.

The partnership aims to (1) improve the knowledge base regarding the state of teacher preparation on LGBT issues through a national research study and (2) develop programmatic efforts and/or resources, informed by the research findings, to further inclusion of LGBT issues in teacher preparation.

For more information, read AACTE's official press release.
