Antihomophobia Education

Antihomophobia Education

Creating an educational community devoted to social justice is central to the mission of Cambridge Friends School, and the school is committed to appreciating and celebrating the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (LGBTQ+) people, while educating children about the serious problems posed by homophobia and heterosexism. We work to create an environment that opposes LGBTQ+ bias and encourages all members of our community to be themselves openly, comfortably, and in full equity. We also work to educate heterosexual people about the importance of taking leadership in this area.

CFS is committed to antihomophobia training for all faculty and staff, and as such, professional development opportunities on LGBTQ+ concerns are sought out. In addition, LGBTQ+ faculty and staff meet regularly to discuss issues of concern. Antihomophobia curriculum, gay, lesbian, and antihomophobia issues are part of the overall, developmentally appropriate curriculum in Early Childhood through grade 8. Teachers work with administrators to assess and plan the school’s ongoing efforts in this area.
