LGBT students: New evidence on demographics and educational outcomes

Dario Sansone ()

Economics of Education Review, 2019, vol. 73, issue C

Abstract: This paper shows that LGBT students in the U.S. are less likely to graduate from high school and attend college. These differences persist after controlling for demographic characteristics, family background, state and school fixed effects. Relatedly, LGBT students have lower educational expectations, a lower sense of school belonging, and are more likely to have been affected by discrimination.
