A school system, firmly grounded on social transformation, inclusion and hetero-normativity, can provide environment and instructional practices rich in diversity for preparing students to live and work in a legally recognized heterogeneous yet harmonious world based on the constitutional norm of social justice. With the emerging new social obligations, schools need to be transformed into small communities of children based on acceptance, sensitivity and inclusion along with heteronormative classroom practices.
Teachers need to be reoriented and trained to understand current LGBT-related policies and provisions to make a shift towards trans-gendering their classroom as an educator Rob Pusch puts it. According to Pusch, the present day teachers need to think beyond conventional gender binaries to learn from the experiences of transgender people and children to change themselves.
There is a need to develop training modules and create pedagogical resources meant to inform teaching practices to get centered on heteronormativity. The current emphasis on Education-for-All and Right to Education Act require school environment, teachers' attitudes and classroom practices for trans-gendering our school education.
