Private Boarding High School vs. Public High School LGBTQIA+ Issues

Project Summary

There is limited research about LGBTQIA+ faculty leadership and their knowledge about LGBTQIA+ related student issues in private boarding high school setting and public high schools. To address the gap in the literature, Taylor conducted a study to assess educator’s knowledge base and exposure regarding their LGBTQIA+ students among their high school’s population. Taylor utilized a case study methodology along with semi-structured interview questions to gather information from faculty advisors who lead LGBTQIA+ affinity groups at their schools.
