This study researched how teachers understand and address homophobia in schools; what factors act as motivators & barriers in affecting their responses to homophobia, and how systematic factors influence this. This topic was investigated by interviewing teachers with a pastoral responsibility in post-primary schools. By interviewing teachers about how schools can support young people who may be experiencing homophobia in school, it was hoped that the study would provide a useful understanding of what helps, and what hinders teachers in creating a safe environment for all pupils.
