LGBT Students Face More Bullying At Schools, Bullying Prevention Month Events Trying To Change That.

The Los Angeles Times (10/20, Kohli) reports a 2013 national survey by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network found that the majority of LGBT students have felt unsafe at school. LGBT students are more likely to be bullied than other students and many choose not to report it out of fear that school staff will not respond effectively or make the situation worse. Some schools are using Bullying Prevention Month to try to change that. Beethoven Elementary School in Mar Vista, California hosted a GLAAD Spirit Day event to show LGBT students they have support from their schools and communities.
