Summary
Educators in Britain have tended to ignore lesbian and gay issues, creating a gap that this book addresses by discussing the complex debates about sexuality and schooling. Contributors to this collection tell stories of distress and victimization and of achievement and support in the following: (1) "Introduction: Lesbian and Gay Equality in Education--Problems and Possibilities" (Debbie Epstein); (2) "So the Theory Was Fine" (Alistair, Dave, Rachel, and Teresa); (3) "Growing Up Lesbian: The Role of the School" (Marigold Rogers); (4) "A Burden of Aloneness" (Kola); (5) "Are You a Lesbian, Miss?" (Susan A. L. Sanders and Helena Burke); (6) "Victim of a Victimless Crime: Ritual and Resistance" (Roy Bartell); (7) "Black in the Closet" (Akanke); (8) "Lesbian and Gay Equality within a Whole School Policy" (Debbie Epstein); (9) "Lesbian and Gay Issues in the Curriculum" (Paul Patrick and Susan A. L. Sanders); (10) "Shifting Ground: Rethinking Sexuality Education" (Peter Redman); (11) "(In)visibility: Sexuality, Race and Masculinity in the School Context" (Mairtin Mac An Ghaill); (12) "Coming Out in the National Union of Teachers" (Gillian Spraggs); and (13) "On the Straight and Narrow: The Heterosexual Presumption, Homophobias and Schools" (Debbie Epstein and Richard Johnson). References follow the chapters. (Contains three figures.) (SLD)
