Bank Street Occasional Paper Series - Queering Education: Pedagogy, Curriculum, Policy

The new Bank Street Occasional Paper Series, Queering Education: Pedagogy, Curriculum, Policy, contains eight essays that take a deep dive into issues surrounding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) lives in educational settings. Queering Education builds from the idea that while much progress has been made over the last few decades, the greater inclusion and engagement of LGBTQ identities in schools is dependent on work still to come. The authors of the issue, many of whom identify as queer, lend their voices and candidly share their own lives, providing readers with several powerful perspectives that promote a deeper and more personal understanding of LGBTQ experiences in school communities.
