Absolutist gay indoctrination in Scottish schools will hit poor hardest

What is worse than laws banning schools from teaching a given political ideology? Answer: requiring a political view to be taught as correct to everyone without exception. Unfortunately this seems to be exactly what the Scottish government, with its Celtic penchant for bossing people around, has just said it wants to do.

Until its repeal in 2000 by the Scottish government, section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988 (often called “clause 28”) amended education law to forbid the teaching in any state school “of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”. This was popular; it meant that from 2000 freedom prevailed, with the matter up to individual governing bodies as it had before 1988.

This year, following a report from a working group led by a campaigning pressure group called Time for Inclusive Education (TIE), the Scottish government has firmly stated that in its view any such freedom is unacceptable.

As soon as guidance and legislation can be put in place, the announcement runs, teachers will be not only allowed but required to teach pupils of all ages to value LGBTI identities (whatever they are), to promote the stories of LGBTI activists and campaigners, and to do this not only in PSE but throughout the curriculum.
