Slesaransky-Poe Publishes in ‘Phi Delta Kappan’

Dr. Graciela Slesaransky-Poe’s article, “Adults set the tone for welcoming all students,” appeared in the February 2013 issue of Phi Delta Kappan, the publication of Phi Delta Kappa International, the premier professional association for educators. Speaking as a mother and a teacher educator, Slesaransky-Poe offered a framework to help K-12 school personnel support gender and sexually diverse students. Her article identifies components of safe school climate, and describes how educators create welcoming, safe, and inclusive schools. Her article also includes resources widely available to counteract the bullying, harassment, and discrimination of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer (LGBTQ) students, families, and school personnel, so prevalent in today’s schools.
