Gay Star News reports on Russia style regression in some schools’ policies on sex education:
Three UK academies have stepped back to the 1980s by banning teachers from saying anything positive about gay life.
Gay Star News can reveal Castle View Enterprise Academy in Sunderland, Colston Girl’s School in Bristol and Swindon Academy have re-introduced anti-gay language from Section 28, which banned the ‘promotion of homosexuality’, into their Sex and Relationships Policy.
The schools’ policy states while ‘objective discussion of homosexuality may take place in the classroom,’ ‘the governing body will not permit the promotion of homosexuality’.
The fact that these policies have been re-introduced is particularly noteworthy and alarming – it would be a different matter if a school had simply failed to update a forgotten policy.
