Idaho LGBTQ youth don’t feel safe at school, survey finds
The vast majority of Idaho lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer teenagers who participated in a national survey say they regularly hear homophobic remarks at school.
Results were released in January from GLSEN’s 2017 “National School Climate Survey,” which is conducted every other year. LGBTQ youth in U.S. middle and high schools are surveyed about their school experiences.
Of the Idaho youth surveyed, 84 percent reported regularly hearing homophobic remarks at school and 74 percent regularly heard negative remarks about transgender people.
