Human Rights Watch on LGBT youth facing discrimination

Human Rights Watch has released a report on the discrimination and more faced by LGBT youth in schools in the U.S.
Human Rights Watch explored the many forms that anti-LGBT bullying takes, including physical violence, sexual assault, verbal harassment, cyberbullying, and exclusion. In many instances, teachers did not intervene, and in some cases educators participated in the harassment.
Particularly disturbing as the incoming administration has threatened to undercut or even end the Office of Civil Rights in the US Department of Education.
