The objective of this study is to evaluate and explain the situation of LGBTQ people in Polish educational system. The number of queer students who experience homophobic and transphobic negative attitudes or even physical abuse by their schoolmates is high. The research investigates how heteronormativity, heterosexuality and gender norms are reproduced or constructed in legal documents, and how it is possible to reduce prejudice towards sexual and gender minorities in Polish high schools through (queer) inclusive pedagogies involving anti-oppressive education. The study focuses on legal documents.
Both discourse and thematic analysis were used to analyze the data in the study. The research analysis takes the following primary sources into consideration: the Constitution, the Civil Code, the Family Guardian Code, the Catholic Church Catechesis, the high school Core, online articles, legal studies and court judgements. The secondary sources are online articles, public polls, etc. written by other authors.
The main finding suggests, that heteronormativity together with dominant gender norms are strongly reproduced and maintained in Polish law and educational system. The influence of the Catholic Church in forming negative attitudes towards LGBTQ individuals is strong and reaching school curricula, which may be a hindrance to implementing queer inclusive pedagogies and anti-oppressive education.
