Rainbow Alliance for Schools

Here’s a nice article from The Age about a new ‘Safe Schools Coalition’ initiative being launched in Victoria. Looks like a great idea:

‘Under the program, schools will be encouraged to set up ”gay/straight student alliances”, share resources and provide teacher training that identifies – and stamps out – homophobia in the classroom. Students and teachers will get access to support networks and be encouraged to create posters, newsletters or forums that promote sexual diversity in schools.

Education Minister Bronwyn Pike said she hoped other gay-friendly schools would ”come out” as well in a bid to raise the public’s consciousness about homosexuality…’
