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.
