Abstract

An evaluation of the Pride & Prejudice program,1 which ran
in three Tasmanian schools in 2006, suggests that students
who completed the program had more positive attitudes
towards gay men and lesbians. This finding parallels an
earlier evaluation of the same anti-homophobia program
undertaken in Victoria.
The evaluation leads to a discussion about the deeper
and often hidden purposes of schooling, and about the
discursive formations of heteronormativity, which provide
a heterosexist basis for ‘curriculum’. Issues related to
school systems becoming more democratic and tolerant
are also identified.
