This chapter presents a discussion of schooling of transsexual persons in Brazil. Considering the high levels of violence affecting LGBT populations in Brazil, federal and state governments, along with LGBT social movements, have conducted conferences to develop policy guidelines for serving LGBT populations, emphasizing education for diversity. From these guidelines, strategies for promoting the schooling of trans persons were adopted in some of the Brazilian states, and the adoption of regulations regarding the use of chosen names in schools is discussed in detail. Policy strategies toward the inclusion of trans persons in Brazilian schools are analyzed, with emphasis on the potential challenges faced by society when opening the school doors to difference.
