Civil Rights Data Collection and LGBTQ+ youth in K-12 schools

GLSEN’s comment letter voices support for many new and restored measures on the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed 2021-2022 Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) and urges the Department to adopt additional measures and revisions, technical assistance practices, and reporting practices that best enable an evaluation of school climate conditions and discriminatory school practices impacting LGBTQ+ youth, particularly those who are transgender, nonbinary, Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC), students with disabilities, and students experiencing homelessness.
