Report focuses on the lives of LGBTQ students
2017-12-20

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


A special journal of the American Educational Research Association has an article that shows that people do not always accurately know the lives of LGBTQ students, The Washington Post reported.

For example, "Introducing a Methodological Research Collection on Pressing Issues for LGBTQ Students" reveals that many topics remain that need further research, such as the growing visibility of trans and gender-creative youth or the potential rollback of protections for LGBTQ youth. Also, grouping "LGBQ" and "T" into a single average estimate can juxtapose sexual identity with gender identity. Additionally, describing "average" experiences ignores nuances in how sexuality and gender identity intersect with other characteristics, such as race or disability.

The journal's issue covers many topics, including gay-straight alliances, intersectionality and youths who experience homelessness.

The Post item is at www.washingtonpost.com; the report ( written by Joseph R. Cimpian and Carolyn D. Herrington ) is at www.aera.net/Publications/Journals/Educational-Researcher/Educational-Researcher-469 .
