“Queering the Classroom” is an ongoing discussion about the trials and successes of queer students, teachers, and staff in American schools. If it’s a matter of representation, a question of legality, or an issue for advocacy, we want to cover it. This podcast is a sort of audio scrapbook of personal stories, interviews and reporting that is accessible for anyone interested in learning about why we can no longer keep what we affectionately term “the gay agenda” out of the classroom.
