LGBTQ Advocacy and Inclusion in Teacher Education

This TAG is a collaborative, interdisciplinary group that advocates for the inclusion of LGBTQ topics in teacher preparation, through law and policy, curriculum and instruction, school environment, peer relationships, and family partnerships. Educators and families need to know the rights and responsibilities of schools to ensure non-discriminatory environments and curricula that impact all children. Teacher education programs are often the first places where educators learn to address bias, prejudice and discrimination, as well as collaborate with school districts to make schools safe, welcoming and inclusive for gender non-conforming and LGBTQ youth and families.
