What is the LGBTQ+ School Leaders Network?
The challenging work of school leadership can often feel isolating—especially if you identify as LGBTQ+. To provide a platform of mutual support for principals and assistant principals in the LGBTQ+ community, NASSP manages a network where administrators can meet regularly to share challenges, struggles, and opportunities, and support each other both personally and professionally.
The network is open to school leaders who identify under the LGBTQ+ spectrum.

In honor of Pride Month, I want to share my experience advocating for Ethnic Studies, an interdisciplinary field that empowers diverse and often marginalized voices. At a time when America is increasingly polarized, the field of Ethnic Studies has become a contentious topic that often pulls apart communities. As education leaders, our role is to persevere and to explain that it is not Ethnic Studies that is dividing us but a lack of empathy and understanding. The antidote to this division is Intersectional Ethnic Studies.
LGBTQ+ students’ lives are being heavily scrutinized and controlled because of the many anti-trans bills and policies being passed at the local, state, and federal levels. These policies have an impact on all students because they concern school uniforms, bathroom use, and sports participation.
As the end of the school year approaches, NASSP President Gregg Wieczorek is winding down Leading Forward: The Listening and Learning Tour. The latest tour stops, highlighted below, come from California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah.
