GLBTQ Online High School
August 7, 2009
Maybe you know someone at your school who’s been bullied for being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (GLBT) or maybe you’ve been bullied yourself. Homophobia and transphobia can create an unbearable environment for GLBT students, the people who care about them and students with GLBT parents or family members.
It’s no surprise then that a GLBTQ Online High School is planning to open in early 2010. While there are schools for GLBT students, like the Harvey Milk High School in New York City, this is the first online school for GLBT students. The school is committed to providing a good, college-preparatory education for GLBT students in a safe and welcoming virtual environment.
An online high school seems like a great alternative for those GLBT teens who go to school in a hostile environment. Everyone deserves the right to learn, and everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. It’s great that this school is an option, but wouldn’t it be great if one day we didn’t need special schools because everyone was respected?
