It's amazing that some muslims will claim that their kids being taught tolerance and understanding for gay kids goes against their values, and that you can't be gay and muslim. Yet, if you tell these same people that you can't be British and muslim since their ideology is incompatible with western, forward-thinking ideals, they freak out.
I would also make this tolerance lesson mandatory, so that if any parent remove their kids from school on the day this is taught, the kid will fail the year and will have to repeat. And we'll do this as often as it needs to be until they partake in that session.
I guess this shows that as the state tries to brainwash our kids at an earlier stage, we need to teach them our beliefs earlier too and let them know that not everything they learn in school is true. A lot of the time the parents are to blame, you can’t blame the state, they’ve made it pretty clear what their goal is, to promote this ultraliberal stuff that goes against thousands of years of tradition.
I honestly don't think religion should be brought into schools in anyway because it always causes conflict between parents, students, teachers etc. It is just isn't the place to learn about this kind of thing. You may argue you with me but I think most people didn't listen to religion in school or just made fun of it, which just causes more conflict.
Teaching LGBT rights though i believe is more important because it is something that is now a key part in UK society, doesn't matter if you like it or not it will be there regardless of religion's opinion of it. LGBT rights are a law that everyone should know and we need to be educated on it more in order for the next generation to be more accepting then us.
I do agree that maybe primary school age is too young for 'sexual orintation' but saying some kids have two dads or two mums doesn't seem the same thing. I don't believe teachers need to go into detail but it's just teaching kids that it is a part of accepted society I think is a key thing.
