Homophobic bullying

As the Greens WA spokesperson on sexuality, Lynn is calling on the Minister for Education to introduce a specific policy against homophobic bullying in schools. She recently moved a motion in the Legislative Council to try to achieve this.



 

 

The motion stated:

That this Council calls upon the Minister for Education to -

1)    Confirm that both she and Department of Education have a duty of care to protect all students from bullying and discrimination in schools

2)    Acknowledge that homophobic bullying is common in WA schools and the absence of specific anti-homophobia policies is a failure of that duty of care.

3)    Introduce policies and practises that protect all students against homophobia at school.
