This article will consider the failure of our education system to truly deal with issues concerning sexuality and sexual orientation, the problems gay and lesbian teens face because of the system's silence, and the response of organizations and politicians to teen homosexuality. Part three will address some of the more successful programs which have been developed to meet the needs of teens dealing with homosexuality. Finally, part four will conclude by arguing for the implementation of comprehensive sexuality education and the enactment of legislation to deal with the needs and problems facing gay and lesbian teens in our public schools.
