Britain’s largest teachers’ union thinks toddlers should be included in expanded compulsory LGBT education programs.
The National Union of Teachers (NUT) passed a motion recently calling on British lawmakers to campaign for compulsory sex education classes and the “promotion of LGBT+ matters for all schools from nursery throughout all phases of state education,” according to The Times of London.
The group decried the current “lack of policies which promote LGBT+ within schools,” causing a “significant negative impact” on the well-being of homosexual and transgender students and teachers. Expanding sex and relationship education (SRE) programs would ensure those students “are told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too.”
Current law in Britain requires mandatory SRE classes in council-controlled secondary schools, but not academies and free schools, which make up the majority of secondary schools.
