AERA to Hold Capitol Hill Briefing on LGBTQ Issues in Education

June 2015

On July 9, AERA will host a live streamed Capitol Hill briefing on LGBTQ issues in education, including bullying and K-12 students, student achievement and educational attainment, the challenges conducting research, and recommendations for further research. In April, AERA published a report titled LGBTQ Issues in Education: Advancing a Research Agenda that examined these and other important areas.
