Can Education Reduce Prejudice against LGBT People?
Including LGBT content in curricula could also offer LGBT students—who disproportionately feel the effects of bullying in schools—a safer, improved educational experience. More than one-third of gay youth have missed a day of school because they felt unsafe, and nine out of ten of LGBT teens have been bullied in school, which can cause students to suffer academically. Educating students about LGBT issues could foster an environment where LGBT students feel safer in the classroom, improving their overall educational experience for years to come.
