Parents seek judicial review over controversial relationships and sex education classes

Sep 16, 2020 by

from Christian Today:

Parents from different faith backgrounds have united to commence a judicial review into the new relationships and sex education (RSE) curriculum.

The judicial review, launched by the Let Kids Be Kids Coalition (LKBKC), will challenge the Education Secretary’s decision not to allow parents to withdraw their children from relationships lessons.

The mandatory curriculum came into effect in all schools across England on 1 September, and will include topics like transgender and LGBTQI issues.

While schools are required to consult with parents on the content of the RSE lessons, parents do not have any right of veto.

Critics of RSE say the relationships lessons include inappropriate material that should be restricted to sex education lessons – where parents still have a right of withdrawal up to their child’s 15th birthday.
