Taking the temperature

Developing and piloting an LGBT-positive school climate evaluation tool for post-primary schools in Ireland

Taking the Temperature has been developed by researchers at ABC – National Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre (ABC) at Dublin City University in conjunction with the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network (GLEN), arising from a pilot study funded by the Irish Research Council’s New Foundations Scheme 2015. The report presents a survey tool that secondary-level schools can use to evaluate the positivity of their school climate and culture in relation to attitudes towards difference and diversity, with specific reference to LGBT identity. The tool can be particularly useful in preventing and dealing with homophobic and transphobic bullying.
