New PRC Research Brief: Addressing Homophobic Bullying in Schools
New Research Brief on Homophobic Bullying

PRC Postdoctoral researcher Jack Day has published a research brief based on his and PRC faculty research associate Stephen Russell's article in Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity entitled, "Supportive, Not Punitive, Practices Reduce Homophobic Bullying and Improve School Connectedness." The brief highlights the best practices for preventing homophobic bullying in schools, an important issue as U.S. states consider how to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act. The brief shows that schools with supportive practices, such as counseling services and a case-by-case approach to discipline, have better outcomes than schools with punitive, “zero tolerance” practices. Read the full brief here.
