by Owens, James G., M.Ed., Minot State University, 2020, 65; 28087906
Abstract (Summary)

Meeting the needs of every student is a difficult task, one that all educators still struggle with for the entirety of their career. Today, one of the most complex set of challenges involves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ+) students. This study aims to find the themes that outline challenges faced by LGBTQ+ students through the experiences of the educators that teach them. The study’s findings will be obtained using focus groups of teachers and administrators to form themes from two departments of a school building; the educators that teach LGBTQ+ students, and administrations that aims to provide a safe, secure, and supportive experience for students that attend the school building.
