Schools have too often kept silent while LBGTQ students were bullied by other students. Murray (2011) describes how some public school policies that appear to be anti-bullying and protective of queer youth do not do as much as the policies should. The policies may break the silence, but do not provide the training that teachers need to intervene nor do they require schools to report bullying. Murray (2011) states that heterosexism (i.e., believing that heterosexuality is the only normal sexual orientation) is institutionalized through formal and informal educational policies that are biased against homosexual students. An example is a zero tolerance for bullying policy. A zero tolerance policy does not accept bullying but also does not accept homosexuality. Due to messages such as this, youth have lost their lives. This tragedy is the most critical manifestation of the reason why we need responsive and responsible education in the US, Belize, and around the world.
