Across the chapters of this book, several prominent themes emerge. First, the chapters highlight that SOGI issues in schools are simultaneously universally global and uniquely local. Second, supportive, safe school climates are critical for positive development, health, and academic success of young people, regardless of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation, and should be understood as human rights issues. Third, the chapters provide evidence that factors affecting SOGI issues in schools are systemic, and strategies for change must also be systemic. In this final chapter, the authors discuss these themes and their implications for creating safer and more affirming educational contexts for young people, highlight critical but as yet underexplored issues in this work, and provide recommendations on how to leverage the nexus of research, practice, and policy to ensure that all young people can realize their full academic and personal potential.
