From Insult To Inclusion : Asia-Pacific Report On School Bullying, Violence And Discrimination On The Basis Of Sexual Orientation And Gender Identity
PDF File Size: 12.75 MB | Download   
Governments of Asia and the Pacific have, by and large, signed on to international legal obligations that promote and develop the right of every person to enjoy access to education of good quality, without discrimination or exclusion. For children and young people who are perceived as ‘different’ and who do not fit into dominant cultures in societies, schools can be alienating and marginalising spaces.This is true for some lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) youth who face discrimination,bullying and violence from their peers and adults in schools, and institutional discrimination through non-inclusive school cultures, facilities, rules and curriculum. This experience also doesn’t end at the school gates, and extends to virtual spaces through cyberbullying among an increasingly “connected” Asia-Pacific youth.In response to this issue, the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights has recommended that States establish national standards on non-discrimination in education, develop anti-bullying programmes and helplines and other services to support LGBTI youth, and to provide comprehensive,age-appropriate sexuality education.
