Teachers campaign for nursery children to be taught about LGBT issues

Created on: 20th April 2017

A campaign has been launched by the members of the National Union of Teachers group to "ensure a comprehensive age-appropriate content including promotion of LGBT +matters for all schools from nursery throughout all phases of state education." An NUT executive member from Buckinghamshire claims that the UK hasn't been doing enough to promote inclusion.

"Those generations of young LGBT people who have been failed by the system are still not told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too," Pryce said.

"The NUT ... needs to ensure that SRE is inclusive to LGBT young people now and forever."

Education Secretary Justine Greening announced back in March that age appropriate sex and relationships guidance is to be made compulsory for all children, though it allowed parents and faith schools to opt out of the new rules.

The Telegraph pointed out that U.K. ministers have been facing "mounting pressure" to respond to concerns that children are not being educated about online porn, cyber bullying and sexting. 

Conservatives, such as Andrea Williams, chief executive at Christian Concern, have warned that teaching statutory sex education to 4-year-olds can be "devastating" and risks "robbing them of their innocence," however.

"Children [age 4] should not be introduced to this. Schools need to be safe places where the innocence of children is protected," Williams said in February.

"Very often sex education introduces children to concepts far too soon, destroying their innocence. This is not something that the state should be laying down. We are very concerned about this," she added.

Transgender issues being imposed upon children has stirred controversy in both the U.K. and the United States in recent times, with one critic calling a recently released book teaching children that men can have periods too "child abuse."

What is wrong with these people? Do they really think that Children of this age have any concepts of sexuality? Just another push from the LGBT community who want to corrupt innocent minds.
