Supportive teachers, principals, and other school staff serve as an important resource for LGBT students. Drawing from findings from the 2009 National School Climate Survey, this webinar will explore how the presence of supportive educators can have a significant positive impact on school climate as well as on LGBT students' academic achievement, school connectedness, and longer-term educational aspirations. It will also highlight key things educators and school officials can do to improve schools for LGBT youth and GLSEN's newly revised Safe Space Kit, a tool designed to help educators create a safe space for LGBT youth in schools.
