[Tags|] Harsh Realities Finds Transgender Youth Face Extreme Harassment in School

The page include a link to a PDF download of the study done by GLSEN. Highlights of the study include:

-overview of the types of problems/harassment faced by trans students compared with GLB cis students and straight cis students.
-consequences of problems/harassment (missing school, dropping out, etc.)
-recommendations for actions that teachers and administrators can take to help solve these problems and make schools safer for trans students
-acknowledgment that GLB and T are not the same thing (and that a person can be both at once.)

If you know anyone who's going into the education field, this is something they need to see.
