The problem of harassment in California schools on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender non-conformity has been widely reported, but rarely studied. This study, carried out by the California Safe Schools Coalition and the 4-H Center for Youth Development at the University of California, Davis, analyzes data from two sources. The 2001-2002 California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), designed by WestEd under a contract with the California Department of Education, is a state survey of student health risk and resilience factors and includes a question about harassment based on actual or perceived sexual orientation. The 2003 Preventing School Harassment (PSH) survey, carried out by the California Safe Schools Coalition in partnership with Gay-Straight Alliance Network, is a more detailed examination of school climate and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender nonconformity.
