The following Data Brief is submitted to Rodney Croome for viewing by The Tasmanian Department of Education and Training by Tiffany Jones, on the 4th of April, 2012. It provides a short overview of data relevant to the Tasmanian education context, collected for the PhD research project Sexual Subjects: GLBTIQ Student Subjectivities in Australian Education Policy (Jones, 2012). This research was based on a mixed methodology, including legal and policy analysis (over 80 national, state and sector education policies), key informant interviews and cross-analysis of new data on the education context for 3,134 Australian GLBTIQ students. The overview is intended to assist in underscoring the need for a distinct Tasmanian education policy that explicitly focusses on GLBTIQ student issues, which would ideally provide detailed guidance around these issues for Tasmanian schools.
