Research conducted by Cambridge University, and published by Stonewall in The School Report 2012, shows that homophobic bullying remains endemic in Britain's schools.
Local authorities play a key role in addressing homophobia and homophobic bullying and supporting lesbian, gay and bisexual young people in their local communities.
On Friday 5 July Stonewall published the third Education Equality Index Report.
The 2013 Index is a comprehensive annual benchmarking exercise for local authorities from across the country, showcasing how well they are tackling homophobia and homophobic bullying in their schools. This year’s Index was highly competitive with 42 local authorities taking part – the highest number of participants ever.
