Summary

This paper examines the research in the area of teachers' attitudes, practices, and beliefs about gay and lesbian issues in education, focusing on homosexuality because although there is some overlap in regards to both the population and the issues, the differences between gay and transgendered issues add another layer of complexity to an already intricate topic. The paper focuses on K-12 education and is organized in a chronological conceptual framework of research from pre-1990, 1990-1993, 1994-1996, and 1997-present. In general, all categories of assumptions--pedagogical, research, epistemological, and queer--move from a limited singular view, to a dichotomous view, to a "continuum" view, to all views being questioned and problematized, pointing to a future of not just inclusion, but of radically questioning and challenging gender and sexual identity constructions. Instead of bipolar oppositions, or even continuums, scholars are viewing human beings as multi-faceted, ever-changing individuals. As these studies have progressed, so have the inclusion of queer issues in the larger conversation. Because queer issues in education are so politically and personally charged, the body of research on teaching regarding gay and lesbian issues cannot be seen as an isolated entity, particularly in light of the negative associations between gays and children promulgated by those wishing to oppress.
