AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP ALL STUDENTS LEARN AND GROW
Most educators, parents and students will admit that even conventional gender roles present formidable challenges for adolescents, so it isn't difficult to see how the lives and appearances of transgender people can seem confusing, mysterious - even threatening.
But transgender is real - not a sickness or a delusion. And for transgender people, navigating even everyday experiences can be difficult...even dangerous, in ways the rest of us might find hard to imagine. Transgender students become targets for discrimination, bullying and violence much more often, but suppression of their specific identies is also unhealthy, frequently leading to depression, addiction and suicide. Conflict aside, transgender people want what the same thing most of us want - a chance to lead satisfying lives.
Fortunately, widespread experience demonstrates that when students gain better understanding of the nature of gender identity, discrimination decreases, along with bullying. In an inclusive school environment, all students are better able to focus on - and share in - opportunites that really matter.
And that's what Just Gender for High School is created to help accomplish - a change in attitude through better understanding. It's a program created by nationally respected experts in resolving transgender issues for institutions, and proven to work in pilot programs. For only $89, it can be available at your school or institution.
