Diversity in school2012, 72 pages

Diversity in School offers training on gender, sexuality, and ethnic (race) relations for teaching professionals. Reducing discrimination by improving understanding of gender, sexual, ethnic and racial diversity is of central importance to the creation of a positive school learning environment.

This English language abridged version includes four modules. Topics addressed include cultural diversity and ethnocentrism; gender diversity; sexuality and sexual orientation; and ethnic inequality. The first introductory module familiarizes the reader with diversity as a core concept. Each of the following modules is divided into three sections. The first section introduces a general concept; the second one addresses that concept in
the school environment, and the third section provides classroom activities to share Diversity in School with students.

Education sector responsesThis 64-page publication from 2012 is part of a Good Policy and Practice series that addresses key themes of UNESCO’s work with the education sector including HIV and AIDS and safe, healthy educational environments for all learners.

The volume of good policies and practices fills a need that teachers, administrators, policy makers, and other education stakeholders have, by providing practical guidance on how to respond to homophobic bullying to make education safer.

There are many challenges involved in addressing homophobic bullying, especially in contexts where homosexuality is a sensitive issue or is illegal. However, there are entry points, such as policies and interventions that address violence and bullying in educational settings, which provide opportunities to address homophobic bullying.

The examples put forth come from a wide range of global contexts demonstrating that it is possible to address homophobic bullying in and through schools everywhere.
