LGB youth educational career integration
Project description

This project investigates adjustment difficulties at school of LGB youth and its consequences for educational achievement and career. Students' educational failure often results from adjustment problems, due to an incongruence betwween their social world and the features of the school context. LGB youth can be expected to have to contend with adjustment problems given the heteronormative character of educational institutions.
