Review:

"...should jolt the conscience and imagination of every educational policymaker, school leader, teacher-educator, and teacher in the nation. It clearly outlines the risks faced by sexual minority students...and provides a compelling road map for both reform and further study." -- Arthur Lipkin, Massachusetts Commission on GLBT Youth

"This study is the first systematic, research-based review that brings together a huge literature on the status of LGBT youth in U.S. schools. This contribution marks a milestone in the literature and represents an enormous amount of research, methodology, and policy review." -- Gilbert Herdt, San Francisco State University

"An excellent contribution to serious discussion of the issues of LGBT youth in schools. The authors have done a service in putting this together." -- Charlotte J. Patterson,  University of Virginia

"...truly a must read for any educator and/or parent."Instinct Magazine, June/July 2012

"[T]he book is a must-read guide to the challenges facing LGBT youth and their schools.... Timely, comprehensive, and highly readable, this study warrants inclusion in any library serving school administrators, teachers, and other adults who work with and care for children and teens.School Library Journal, June 2012
