Notes
The current provisions for educational indoctrination as detailed in the Terrorism Act 2000 and Sections 406 and 407 of the Education Act of 1996 are vague, and fail to include explicit procedural remediatory action as to protect the integrity of the education system and protect the most vulnerable in our society - children - from being imbued with toxic partisan principles, opinions, points of view, ideals, attitudes, cognitive strategies or professional methodologies by educational staff that have indisputable and explicit links to proscribed organisations - organisations that explicitly wish to destroy our society and removing all liberties and freedoms. This Bill removes all ambiguity.


Changes for the Second Reading
Following constructive criticism, the definition of indoctrination has been simplified.

The notion of ‘indisputable links’ has too been simplified.

And the question that has for years remained unanswered: why? What is the major deficiency in existing legislation that necessitates it?
