What LGBT parents want in schools

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


LGBT parents are becoming increasingly common in Australian schooling communities. Research has not explored the ability for schooling communities and institutions to reflect the now greater levels of acceptance and the push for inclusive supports for LGBT parents. This research is particularly pertinent as attitudes, beliefs and stereotypes of Australians seem to have changed in recent years. This article reports on a survey of LGBT parents designed to understand their views on supports.
