dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores how State anti-homophobic bullying legislation affects Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning students in secondary schools. State bullying laws guide individual school district policy development. However, not all state bullying laws are inclusive of sexual preference. The States that do have anti-homophobic bullying laws turn out similar reports of bullying as those States that do not have such legislation. Anti-bullying laws are intended to protect all students. A lack of sexual orientation inclusion or a lack of enforcement of anti-homophobic bullying laws denies GLBTQ students protection from bullying.
