A Silent Crisis:
This resource guide includes a wealth of information for teachers, counselors, administrators, and others who want to learn more about creating conditions for learning that are physically and emotionally safe for all students, including those who are or are perceived to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. With over 50 new resources, the 5th Edition includes many practical tools and strategies for providing safe, respectful and supportive learning environments. The guide is particularly timely, given recent headlines about gay teens across the country who have committed suicide, following bullying and harassment.
A Silent Crisis was developed by the Calhoun Intermediate School District, the Michigan Department of Education, and Detroit Public Schools, with feedback from educators and youth advocates throughout Michigan and the nation. It was developed under a Cooperative Agreement from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Adolescent and School Health.
