About this book

This book provides a comprehensive account of the educational experiences of students, parents, and educators—transgender and cisgender—in the context of current debates about the inclusion of transgender people in schools. Drawing on critiques of cisgenderism and emphasising the importance of a whole-of-school approach, Transgender People and Education explores complex topics including sexuality education for transgender young people, teaching about gender diversity, the journeys of cisgender parents of transgender children, the experiences of transgender parents and educators in schools, and the role of cisgender administrators, educators, and school counsellors and psychologists in creating inclusive school cultures. Reporting on empirical analyses conducted by the authors, the book makes a unique contribution to thinking about gender diversity in schools and advocates for the broadening of educational approaches beyond narrow gender binaries.

Reviews

“Transgender People in Education is highly informative and practical. … this book is very relevant to the full range of people who work in education. However, and importantly, its practical and accessible nature makes it an essential read for every pre-service and practising teacher. There is much need in education for increased professional development related to transgender people in order to ensure that educational sites provide equitable and inclusive learning, teaching and working spaces for all.” (Tania Ferfolja, Journal of LGBT Youth, Vol. 16 (3), 2019)

“The book … provide a thorough overview of the often widely-ranging interdisciplinary scholarship of our field. I would consider this an essential volume for gender and childhood scholars, but also for anyone working with and supporting transgender people in schools: the resources provided are far-ranging and can benefit any reader.” (Sally Campbell Galman, Gender and Education, November 16, 2018)



“Transgender People and Education answers the questions we didn't know we had about cisgenderism—using clear language and real experiences. It shifts the responsibility for inclusion from the trans person to the whole school community—and clearly explains how it can be done.” (Professor Renée DePalma Ungaro, University of Coruña, Spain)

“This is a critical, timely extension to current understandings of the needs and experiences of transgender people in schools. With an increased awareness of issues facing transgender people globally, there has been a major conservative backlash against discussions of gender and sexuality diversity in schools and school curricula. This is a much-needed, insightful examination of the importance of a whole of school approach to transgender inclusion in schools, for the betterment of all school members.” (Professor Kerry Robinson, Western Sydney University, Australia)
