The final report of a national study, headed by Dr. Catherine Taylor, Professor (Education) at The University of Winnipeg — in partnership with The Manitoba Teachers’ Society — called The Every Teacher Project on LGBTQ*-inclusive Education in Canada’s K-12 Schools (*lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, Two-Spirit, queer and questioning) was released January 15, 2016.

Among the main findings are the following:

  • The vast majority of teachers approve of LGBTQ-inclusive education
  • Teachers in Catholic schools are only slightly less likely to approve, but much less likely to practice, LGBTQ-inclusive education
  • Only 2% cited conflict with personal religious beliefs as holding them back
  • 18% agreed that teachers should be able to opt out for religious reasons
  • Among the main reasons given for not teaching in LGBTQ-inclusive ways were lack of leadership and resources
  • Two-thirds were aware of teachers being harassed for being LGBTQ
  • Almost all rated their school as safe but far fewer rated their school as safe for LGB or transgender students
