And now communities, families and educators across the country are wondering what they can do to help stop this epidemic of bullying, and help create safer schools.
PFLAG National's Safe Schools Coordinator Suzanne Greenfield weighed in in today's issue of The Southern Voice (SOVO).
With expert agreeing that bullying presents a major hazard to the health and education of young people, Suzanne shares with SOVO her thoughts.
PFLAG chapters, including several in Georgia, try to work with school districts to make them aware of issues gay students may face as well as work to offer resources to educators to help them understand LGBT issues.
“Sex is not what we are talking about — we are talking about bullying,” [Greenfield] said.
