Lucy Rycroft-Smith – The Equal Classroom: LGBTQ+ identities and schools

About the Session

What can teachers, practitioners and educators do to support students who are exploring, sharing and restoring LGBTQ+ identities? In this talk I draw on ideas from my book The Equal Classroom and other research evidence to suggest useful ways that we can all belong in education.
