TT452: Towards LGBT+ Inclusive Education

This report investigates the ways in which the teaching of RE may both empower teachers and students to challenge prejudice and discrimination and may also undermine these activities, and provides guidance as to how the teaching of RE can be most effective in enabling teachers and students to challenge discrimination.  This includes understanding that LGBT+ students are a vulnerable group at risk of underachieving, and that careful application of the principles of Critical Realism and the contributions of queer theory can provide a safe and challenging environment for effective learning dialogues.
