Challenge

Schools are obligated to ensure that no student is harassed based on actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. Teachers play a crucial role in preventing and stopping homophobic bullying yet they do not get adequate training on how to intervene. Creating Bias-Free Classrooms offers middle and high school teachers tangible solutions to harassment, bullying and hate-behavior aimed at students who identify as (or are perceived to be) lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

Solution

Creating Bias-Free Classrooms is a teacher-training program that uses professional youth actors and live, improvisational theater to equip educators to build inclusive learning environments for students targeted by homophobia.

Long-Term Impact

Our vision is to create safe, equitable and bias-free learning environments for all students, regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation.
