Education Minister Chris Carter is tomorrow expected to announce a major new initiative to combat bullying against LGBT people in schools. Minister of Education Chris Carter "Gay, lesbian and transgender students face a lot of discrimination in the school environment, particularly in secondary school, so we are working on some major initiatives there," the openly-gay MP and cabinet minister signalled last month. The Government's new initiatives, which GayNZ.com understands will be announced tomorrow morning, aim to combat the serious problem of bullying, "making schools a safer place, not just for LGBT kids, but for all young New Zealanders."
