I usually don't think of blogs as news sources, but this one lists not only facts but raises serious questions.
For allies, adults and school staff to get involved in making schools safe for all students to learn and for all teachers to teach, there are a few resources: The Oregon Safe Schools Coalition, the Washington Safe Schools Coalition, the Gay Lesbian Straight Educators Network, and I love the ACLU. This is their LGBTQ site.
