Safe Is Not Enough illustrates how educators can support the positive development of LGBTQ students in a comprehensive way so as to create truly inclusive school communities. Using examples from classrooms, schools, and districts across the country, Michael Sadowski identifies emerging practices such as creating an LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum; fostering a whole-school climate that is supportive of LGBTQ students; providing adults who can act as mentors and role models; and initiating effective family and community outreach programs.



While progress on LGBTQ issues in schools remains slow, in many parts of the country schools have begun making strides toward becoming safer, more welcoming places for LGBTQ students. Schools typically achieve this by revising antibullying policies and establishing GSAs (gay-straight student alliances). But it takes more than a deficit-based approach for schools to become places where LGBTQ students can fulfill their potential. In Safe Is Not Enough, Michael Sadowski highlights how educators can make their schools more supportive of LGBTQ students' positive development and academic success.

"This compelling volume showcases exemplary people and programs to inspire the next wave of school reform on behalf of sexual minority and transgender students. It proves that LGBTQ curricular inclusion and student affirmation is transformative, regardless of district demographics or culture."
--Arthur Lipkin, author, Beyond Diversity Day: A Q&A on Gay and Lesbian Issues in Schools

"Michael Sadowski provides an exhilarating vision of the future we have long sought: schools that embrace and affirm LGBTQ youth and celebrate diversity. Our movement has led the nation in improving how LGBTQ students are treated, and this book provides a thrilling overview of the transformation underway in great schools nationally."
--Eliza Byard, executive director, GLSEN

"Academic success is only possible when students know that they are safe, welcomed, and valued in the classroom and the school, and when LGBTQ identities are honored and included in the school curriculum. Safe Is Not Enough gives educational leaders meaningful strategies for transforming the organizational- and classroom-level response to supporting LGBTQ students."
--Christopher McGinley, professor of educational leadership, Temple University, and former superintendent of Lower Merion School District, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania

Michael Sadowski is a faculty member in education at Bard College and is the director of the Bard Early College-Hudson Initiative. Kevin Jennings is the executive director of the Arcus Foundation.
