Forget Actual Schooling: UK Schools Get Rated on LGBTI Inclusion

Marriage-Alliance-Australia-LGBTI-Inclusion-UK.jpgNot too long ago, a mark of a good school was how well their students performed in subjects such as maths, science, English, and the like. Enter same-sex marriage, and radical ideologies become the “new” ideals of education. 

For proof, just take a look at what is happening to schools in the UK: a newly released guide instructs UK parents on how to assess a school’s level of LGBTI inclusion.

The guide – titled Inclusion Matters – was produced by a LGBTI activist group named P3:PROUD.PROFESSIONAL.PARENTS. It is described as a “first of its kind resource” which will assist parents in “assessing a school’s commitment to diversity and inclusion”.

Inclusion Matters provides background on English state and independent schools’ statutory obligations under the Equality Act and explains how these schools are formally assessed on diversity by Ofsted and the Independent Schools Inspectorate. The guide shows how case law supports parents and carers having a voice in shaping a school’s commitment to diversity and more importantly inclusion. 

The guide calls on parents to speak out if they think that schools have made “heteronormative assumptions” such as using the words “mother” and “father” (perish the thought!). Parents are encouraged to compliment schools that are “actively promoting LGBT+” issues in their curricula, in events and with organisations they support. The document also says parents could recommend a “LGBT+ role model”.

Co-founder of P3 Tuvia Borok covered the launch of the program in an op-ed on Huffpost. One does not need to read between the lines to see the agenda being driven here.

I say LGBT family inclusion is not about sexual education; it’s not teaching children about the birds and the bees; it is about teaching that families come in different shapes and sizes and accepting that families are about love, care and trust. Being a family has nothing to do with having one mother and one father. With 20,000 dependent children being raised by same sex families in the UK, and over 1.25 million people in the UK identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or other, LGBT and LGBT family inclusion matters. And in fact, it is required by law. So, while people like me have rights, that is not enough. {Emphasis added}

Additionally, school libraries are encouraged to stock books which promote “families of all shapes and sizes”, such as The New Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Mama Bear, Mommy Bear and Baby Bear. Parents are advised to check whether staff at the schools wear rainbow pride accessories such as lanyards, or whether the schools celebrate gay history month. According to Borok:

The guide’s launch was recently featured in mainstream UK press given the guide is useful to all parents or carers who seek an inclusive and diverse educational environment, not just those who are LGBT. If a school has been successful at LGBT inclusion, it will likely be successful at other strands of diversity (such as gender, race or religion) which have been part of the school curriculum for longer than sexuality.

Where Borok’s logic fails is where he argues schools which are “successful at LGBT inclusion” also “will likely be successful at other strands of diversity (such as gender, race or religion)”. We have seen many times that those who seek to push LGBT issues are in fact, intolerant of any opposing views – even when it comes from members of the LGBTI community.

As always, preventing bullying is an admirable goal. However, the guide is clearly a way to single out schools which are not compliant with the LGBTI agenda. The agenda being pushed is one in which the traditional family is dissolved in favour of “new” types of families. 

Chris McGovern, from Campaign for Real Education, commented on the guide.

“All children should be taught the ‘golden rule’ of treating others as they would wish to be treated… Requiring youngsters to see the world through a complicated adult lens of LGBT issues is, however, likely to confuse and trouble many younger children.”

Simon Calvert, spokesman for The Christian Institute, agreed with McGovern:

“Of course we want children to respect all people, but we don’t have to introduce very young children to every conceivable lifestyle in order to teach respect.”

By legalising same-sex marriage, the UK has paved the way for radical agenda to become the governing rule. Everyone is affected by same-sex marriage – even institutions such as school libraries! These “guidelines” do more than advise parents – they warn all parties that total compliance to the LGBTI ideology is not a choice.

American author Mark Twain once advised to never let schooling get in the way of education. In the UK though, their motto is ‘never let schooling get in the way of the LGBTI agenda’.
