Parliamentary briefing: teaching ‘gender identity’ in the RSE curriculum

from Transgender Trend:

Yesterday (February 26) we took part in a Parliamentary Briefing on the new RSE curriculum in the House of Commons convened by the Lords and Commons Family and Child Protection Group Education Working Party and chaired by Rt Hon Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP. The other speakers were Judith Nemeth, Revd Lynda Rose, Head teacher Ed Matyjaszek and parent Jacqueline Corcoran whose objection to the No Outsiders programme was met with indifference from her four year-old daughter’s school.

We were there to talk specifically about the inclusion of ‘gender identity’ in the RSE curriculum and the kind of programmes being offered on this issue, such as No Outsiders.

The briefing was well-attended and although only two MPs (Stephen Timms and Danny Kruger) came along, several MPs’ assistants were also present and others who had wanted to attend sent their apologies. Transcripts of our briefings were made available and we publish them here. There are PDF versions at the end of this post which we encourage everyone to send to their local MP.
