A new study has found that gay, lesbian and bisexual teachers are less likely to confront anti-LGBT bullying in the classroom — but why is this? The study, conducted by Doctor Tiffany Wright and team from Millersville University in Pennsylvania surveyed 350 teachers and principals through a process of in depth interviews.

Approximately two-thirds of those surveyed said they had never seen another teacher protest homophobia if it came from other members of staff, while 59 percent said they had heard anti-gay comments made by other teachers.
