Nearly 4 in 5 LGBTQ+ students don’t see positive LGBTQ+ representation in their curriculum, nearly 9 in 10 experience verbal harassment, and almost a third miss school for feeling unsafe or uncomfortable. The Day of Silence is a national movement to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ+ students in school, which demands that school leaders take action to be more inclusive.In the U.S., you DO have a right to participate in Day of Silence and other expressions of your opinion at a public school during non-instructional time: the breaks between classes, before, and after the school day, lunchtime, and any other free times during your day. You do NOT have a right to remain silent during class time if a teacher asks you to speak. for further information visit day of silence or email mr. Gleichmann at "firstname.lastname@example.org"
