MEETINGS: VIC EDUCATION DEPARTMENT

On Monday 13th October, Daniel attended the first of a series of meetings with Victoria’s Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to discuss the possibility of a¬†partnership to make schools safer for LGBTI students. ¬†There was much interest in Daniel’s Pride & Prejudice educational package, still the only formally-evaluated challenging homophobia program shown to work across both metropolitan and non-metropolitan schools, and both religious and non-religious schools.

Daniel shared his experiences in Australia, as well as internationally when he worked with the Dutch government-funded Global Alliance for LGBT Education (GALE), particularly the limitations of funding third party organisations to create safer educational settings for LGBTI students.

Stay tuned for news about meetings in late November.
