Teaching sex? Teachers' knowledge about and strategies towards non-heteronormative youth

Schmitt, Irina. 2010-2014. Teaching sex? Teachers' knowledge about and strategies towards non-heteronormative youth in Canada. Supported through a Faculty Research Program grant by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada. Visiting Associate Professor at the Centre for Women’s and Gender studies, University of British Columbia, fall 2010.

Researcher: Irina Schmitt

Abstract:
The other project I am working with is about teachers’ and schools’ knowledge about queer/ed students. With this project, I analyze strategies in education policy and practice that address sexual and gender diversity in Canada, where there is a long tradition of both anti-discrimination legislation and of queer activism that also has created some changes in schools. These strategies both succeed and fail in creating schools that are good places for queer/ed students and teachers. The study is based on interviews with teachers and activists in Vancouver and Toronto in Canada. Participants discuss social justice work as well as changes in policy and curriculum, as well as the limitations they experience in this work.

Source of funding: Faculty Research Program grant by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada.
