It started with one Birmingham primary, now it’s spreading nationwide
Schools across England have received letters opposing the teaching of relationships and sex education (RSE) and LGBT equality. Protests started in Birmingham and letters, predominantly from conservative Muslims, have been sent to a number of schools elsewhere.
Nazir Afzal said some protesting at Anderton Park Primary School had fallen foul of those who "wrongly and maliciously" claim the school is teaching pupils about homosexuality. The curriculum had "no reference to gay sex" and some were "hijacking the dispute for their own ends", he said.
Mr Afzal said: "I've seen dozens and dozens of men invariably, outside that school, coming straight from the mosque for example or from whatever place of worship, who have no place to be there. "What the hell are they doing outside screaming at five year olds? What are they doing?
In recent weeks, children have been removed from classes and teachers have been threatened. The protests spread to Anderton Park from Parkfield Community School in Alum Rock, where parents raised a petition in January claiming some of the teaching contradicted Islam. The "No Outsiders" scheme, created by one of its teachers Andrew Moffatt, had been running at Parkfield since 2014. It was formed to educate children about the Equality Act, British values and diversity using storybooks to teach children about LGBT relationships, race, religion, adoption and disability.
My fave part of the video is when one of the protesters gets questioned by the reporter, and be hold, she can't speak English!
My second fave part is the way non of what being shouted is labelled as "hate speech" by the BBC or any other network. Conservative Europeans must be watching these videos wondering why these people are being handled so gently.Last edited by LurkerJ - on 31 May 2019
