In Praise of Diversity: why schools should seek gay and lesbian teachers, and why it's still difficult

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

This article begins from imagining what it would be like to target recruitment for teachers at lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual (LGBT) people, and then examines in some detail two kinds of discrimination (or pathology) which makes life in the world of education problematic. It then turns to why, in spite of these difficulties, lesbian and gay teachers bring particular personal qualities to teaching, as well as inspiring necessary structural changes.
