Education Equality Index 2019

The Index

Stonewall released the results of its eighth annual Education Equality Index in February 2019.

This year, 28 local authorities from England, Scotland and Wales took part in the Index, which is a comprehensive benchmarking exercise for local authorities, showcasing how well they’re celebrating difference and tackling homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools as well as supporting LGBT young people in their local communities.
