Is there a need to challenge homophobic name-calling and other homophobic bullying in your school but uncertainty about how to address it?

It shows what homophobic bullying looks like, who experiences it and explores the reasons why young people bully others homophobically. It also reveals why young people are often reluctant to report homophobic bullying, the increasing role played by the internet and the profound effects bullying can have well into adulthood. Adopting a whole-school approach, this book provides all the advice schools need on prevention, working with those who bully, handling disclosures and anti-bullying policies. Written by an expert in the field, this is a vital guide for schools, teachers and anyone with a duty of care towards young people.

This book uses the world of sports in order to reveal the complicated history of gender, sexuality, race, and social justice while connecting those stories to today’s athletes. It highlights the ways sports often contribute to inequalities, but also how they can help make the world more accepting. Have you ever wondered why most cheerleaders are girls? It didn’t used to be that way. Up until the early twentieth century, all cheerleaders were actually boys. And why do some athletes, like Caster Semenya, have to prove they’re women while there’s no testing for men? Why do athletes like Megan Rapinoe and Colin Kaepernick use sports as a platform for social justice, and should they? These questions and more are examined in Throw Like a Girl, Cheer Like a Boy: The Evolution of Gender, Identity, and Race in Sports. Robyn Ryle uses the world of sports to examine the history, controversy, and current conversations around sexuality, race, and social justice, bringing in the stories of today’s athletes to highlight where things stand in the present. Topics covered include gender segregation, gender testing, transgender athletes, sexuality, homophobia, globalization, race, and activism. Throw Like a Girl, Cheer Like a Boy shows the great strides that have been made in the sports world recently, but there are still questions that remain and work that needs to be done. This book brings to attention the ways in which sports can contribute to inequalities, while also demonstrating how sports can help create a more just world for everyone.

This book is a celebration of recognition, affirmation and inclusion. Primary teachers tell the story of how they have challenged the taken-for-granted norms and silences in primary schools around sexual orientation and gender expression. Through their accounts of practice, reflections and interpretations, vignettes and images, the teachers describe how they have challenged this non-addressed area of inclusion across England, from a tiny village church school to urban and suburban settings. Working within and beyond the curriculum, teachers have broken boundaries in primary practice for sexualities in a struggle for greater equality.

Who are our teachers? Should we care about who teaches our children? Because who they are, matters. It matters because who teachers are, manifests in how they teach. The authors’ analyses of prominent teachers in Anglo-Saxon philosophy of education and Muslim philosophy of education, coupled with their own narratives of what it means to be and become a teacher inform the central theme of this book, namely that teachers do matter. In addition, no attempt at good teaching and learning can manifest without having some idea of who teachers are and who they can become. In the main, becoming an authentic teacher can happen only in the presence of what it means for teachers to be or become transformative, dialectical and imaginative, deconstructive and friendly, expositors of equality and disruption, eloquent and conscientious and spiritual. It is such an understanding, which the authors advance and dare to cultivate in our institutions of primary, secondary and higher learning.

Challenging Violence in Schools

"Finally! A book that not only shows how the problem of 'school violence' is really a problem of boys' violence, but also a book that offers concrete, gender-based interventions to help all of us - parents, teachers, community - work to reduce it. It is not an overstatement to say that this book will save lives" - Professor Michael Kimmel, SUNY Stony Brook. "This is an important book in which Martin Mills provides a carefully argued analysis of gender-based violence in schools as well as a wealth of strategies for challenging its many facets. Challenging Violence in Schools is a grim reminder that the current narrow fixation with academic achievement needs to be broadened if schools are to act responsibly in playing their part in making the future. This book should be compulsory reading for all teachers. - Professor Pat Mahony, University of Surrey Roehampton. "The contemporary concern about boys in schooling most often works within a 'competing victims syndrome', seeking to pit the interests of boys against those of girls. The strength of Martin Mills' book is that it takes a different stance in relation to boys in schooling. It focuses upon the ways dominant constructions of masculinity can lead to inappropriate and dangerous behaviours in schools. These violent behaviours affect the lives of all those in and associated with schools, including many other boys, many girls, as well as teachers. Drawing on research, Mills analyses and seeks to understand these issues and also makes useful recommendations for teachers and others in schools wanting to address these matters. This book is mandatory reading for anyone concerned with this important issue." - Professor Bob Lingard, Graduate School of Education, The University of Queensland. * Why are boys the major perpetrators of violence in schools? * What are the significant issues which schools need to take into account when dealing with boys' violence? * What are some practical strategies for addressing these issues? This book explores the relationship between violence and masculinity within schools. There is a clear need to explore this relationship. A substantial amount of evidence exists which demonstrates how boys are the major perpetrators of violence in schools - from extreme acts of violence such as school shootings in the US to more common forms of schoolyard bullying - and that both girls and boys are their victims. The book suggests that violence has been 'masculinized' in such a way that boys often perpetrate violence as a means of demonstrating their perception of what counts as a valued form of masculinity. This masculinization of violence has often meant that girls experience violence from boys who are seeking to demonstrate their superiority over girls, and it has also meant that some boys often experience violence due to their non-conformity to dominant images of masculinity. In order to support these arguments the book draws on extensive interview data collected from boys and teachers who were involved in anti-violence programs in their schools.

From the high-profile outing of MPs and bishops to their attacks on hypocrisy in the Catholic Church or homophobia in the Labour Party, campaigns by Outrage! have sparked bitter controversy and debate. Blowing whistles, banging drums and sporting T-shirts with in-yer-face slogans, these self-styled queers with attitude have profoundly affected the culture and politics of the lesbian and gay communities. This is an account of the politics and personalities behind this notorious group. A substantial part of the book deals with the controversy surrounding the age of consent.
