January 10th, 2014

The College of Education is proud to be a co-sponsor of this event with the OSU Pride Center. Come listen to a Pride Panel of LGBTQ students, teachers, and faculty discuss their experiences in the K-12 educational system.

Our goal in partnering on this event is to discuss gender and sexual identity issues in education from both a student and teacher perspective.  This is part of our professional development efforts, and we hope everyone leaves with some new resources/ideas for continued professional development.

For more on this topic, please check out this blog post from Teaching Tolerance, who posted an anonymous blog entry from a gay elementary school teacher:  The Classroom Closet . He is responding to a district’s screening of the Teaching Tolerance movie Bullied.  (We do have a copy in the College of Education if you want to see it.)  The blog entry is a moving read with several personal stories in the comments from readers.
