Challenge

Schools are obligated to ensure that no student is harassed based on actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. Teachers play a crucial role in preventing and stopping homophobic bullying yet they do not get adequate training on how to intervene. Creating Bias-Free Classrooms offers middle and high school teachers tangible solutions to harassment, bullying and hate-behavior aimed at students who identify as (or are perceived to be) lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

Solution

Reduce prejudice and intergroup conflict among youth and adults. Create safe and inclusive schools.
All students deserve a safe and inclusive school environment where they can thrive, both socially and academically. The Creating Bias-Free Classrooms teacher training helps make that vision a reality.

Long-Term Impact

Our vision is to create safe, equitable and bias-free learning environments for all students, regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation.
