About this book

This book provides a comprehensive account of the educational experiences of students, parents, and educators—transgender and cisgender—in the context of current debates about the inclusion of transgender people in schools. Drawing on critiques of cisgenderism and emphasising the importance of a whole-of-school approach, Transgender People and Education explores complex topics including sexuality education for transgender young people, teaching about gender diversity, the journeys of cisgender parents of transgender children, the experiences of transgender parents and educators in schools, and the role of cisgender administrators, educators, and school counsellors and psychologists in creating inclusive school cultures. Reporting on empirical analyses conducted by the authors, the book makes a unique contribution to thinking about gender diversity in schools and advocates for the broadening of educational approaches beyond narrow gender binaries.

Reviews

“Transgender People and Education answers the questions we didn't know we had about cisgenderism—using clear language and real experiences. It shifts the responsibility for inclusion from the trans person to the whole school community—and clearly explains how it can be done.” (Professor Renée DePalma Ungaro, University of Coruña, Spain)

“This is a critical, timely extension to current understandings of the needs and experiences of transgender people in schools. With an increased awareness of issues facing transgender people globally, there has been a major conservative backlash against discussions of gender and sexuality diversity in schools and school curricula. This is a much-needed, insightful examination of the importance of a whole of school approach to transgender inclusion in schools, for the betterment of all school members.” (Professor Kerry Robinson, Western Sydney University, Australia)
