Reviews

In Gender and Sexual Diversity in Schools, Elizabeth Meyer provides a beautifully written and engaging discussion of the need for inclusivity in schools. Meyer offers a realistic and systematic process for transforming schools into inclusive and comfortable environments for all. As an educator, and queer theorist, I believe that this book is an exceptional contribution to the field of education. Although the book focuses on North American educational policy, Meyer's suggestions should benefit educators worldwide. I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in diversity and inclusion.Ryan G. Polly, M. Ed. California Institute of Integral Studies, Shelburne, VT, USA ryanpolly@comcast.net A(c) 2011, Ryan G.

Elizabeth Meyer's user-friendly book combines a comprehensive overview of theory and research alongside compelling illustrations of problems and practical solutions regarding gender and sexual diversity in schools. Whether you are just starting to ask questions or already think you know the answers, this book will undoubtedly raise consciousness and commitment to change. Anyone who works in or with schools should read this book ... and then act on it. Kevin Kumashiro, Professor and Chair of Educational Policy Studies and Interim Co-Director of the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy, University of Illinois at Chicago This is a terrific text that should appeal to scholars working in teacher and leadership education, as well as social foundations and policy. Using an engaging, forthright writing style, and meticulously well-organized, Meyer successfully captures the breadth and depth of the issues involved with sexual and gender diversity. Gender and Sexual Diversity in Schools should become standard scholarly fare in a host of areas. Catherine A. Lugg, Associate Professor of Education, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
