Abstract

Report submitted to Yvonne Henderson and the Western Australian Equal Opportunity Commission Education Policy Steering Committee, Perth. [In memory of Isabelle Lake].

This introduction locates the report within the global push for policy around discrimination and bullying on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. The literature review outlines the shifting contexts and research that underline the importance of specific provisions for GLBTIQ students. The review of Western Australian education identifies key gaps and opportunities for improvements. The fourth section supplies a rationale for the Safe and Supportive Schools approach. The fifth section provides recommendations.
