Private Boarding High School vs. Public High School LGBTQIA+ Issues
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.
Taylor Endress (Tucker) received his BSW from the UConn School of Social Work in 2020. He is currently pursuing his MSW at UConn with a concentration area of policy practice. Taylor’s goal is to work to improve healthcare policies by making healthcare accessible, affordable, and affirmative to all LGBTQ+ individuals with an emphasis and focus on those who identify as transgender.
