Dealing with Gay Students, Bullying in Very Different Ways

Thanks to Karen Gautney and the LGBT Project for pointing me to this story on CNN.com about the Minneapolis School District's comprehensive approach to dealing with bullying and harassment of LGBT students.
"In January, the school board unanimously passed a unique resolution instructing administrators to track bullying incidents related to the harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students. The measure also requires all staff to be trained on LGBT issues. It injects LGBT topics into the curriculum, which includes adding an LGBT component to sex ed. They will eventually add an elective high school course on LGBT history." (source: www.cnn.com)
