Launch of the Guide for School Principals on Including LGB Students
Resource type: Video
On 30 May 2011 the Department of Education and Skills, the National Association of Principals and Deputy Principals (NAPD) and the Gay & Lesbian Equality Network (GLEN), an Atlantic grantee, launched Including Lesbian, Gay & Bisexual Students in School Policies: Guidelines for Principals, a set of resources for school leaders to assist them in making schools safe, supportive and affirming places for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) students. The resource provides concrete suggestions in relation to policy, programmes, practice and how to communicate this to LGB and other students.
This video includes speeches by GLEN Chairperson Kieran Rose, GLEN Director of Education Sandra Irwin-Gowran, NAPD Director Clive Byrne, Minister for Education and Skills Ruairí Quinn, TD, and GLEN Director Brian Sheehan.
