UNESCO Publishes Guidance to Tackle Homophobic Bullying

May 13, 2013

Homophobic bullying is “a moral outrage, a grave violation of human rights and a public health crisis.” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.   The UNESCO document contains many ideas addressing the issue of homophobia in schools – why it is important; why teachers are not dealing with it, and ideas as to how they and students can unite to combat it.  There is a huge amount of information here, and we’d recommend it to everyone serious about making the education system properly inclusive.   The PDF is available from the website, which also has a number of video resources embedded.   http://www.unesco.org/new/en/education/themes/leading-the-international-agenda/health-education/homophobic-bullying/
