This brand new course analyzes how an educator can serve as an ally while protecting the needs and rights of LGBT students.

A student’s education isn’t just obtained from books and lectures in a classroom environment. Shared experiences and mentorship provided by teachers can play a key role in a student’s growth. That’s why educators can serve as important support figures for LGBT students.

With that in mind, TargetSolutions is proud to announce the release of its new training course for School Districts, “Introduction to Understanding the Rights of LGBT Students.”

This 30-minute course delivers a brief history of the LGBT movement in the United States, the struggles routinely undertaken by LGBT students, and what a school district’s personnel can do to help.

“Introduction to Understanding the Rights of LGBT Students is an integral course for educators,” said TargetSolutions’ Client Services Manager Jennifer Jones. “LGBT students may be undergoing daily bouts of anxiety, depression, and bullying. This course will help educators better understand these struggles and create a safe and supportive environment.”

The all-new course features in-depth lessons focused on teaching educators how to create a safer environment for LGBT students. Objectives of this course include:

  • Identifying and analyzing your own belief system
  • Familiarizing yourself with a glossary of LGBT-related terms
  • Describing what an ally is and how to become one
  • Explaining common struggles LGBT students face
