From STV yesterday:
Scotland has become the first country in the world to embed lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender inclusive-education across the school curriculum.
All school staff will be given a basic awareness e-learning course on LGBT inclusive education and a toolkit of LGBT-inclusive education teaching resources.
Subjects across age groups will now include LGBT identities, issues and history in a bid to promote equality and reduce bullying.
And a dedicated website will also be launched with resources for information to support young people.
Parents, teachers, young people and LGBT organisations helped to develop the website, e-learning course and teaching resources.
A report by charity Stonewall found nearly half of lesbian, gay, bi and trans pupils – including 64 per cent of trans pupils – are bullied at school for being LGBT.
The move has been welcomed by campaign groups.https://news.stv.tv/scotland/scotland-first-country-in-world-to-teach-lgbt-inclusivity-in-schools?top
The National, the Herald and UK Today News have welcomed this development.
BBC Scotland is busy with soldiers arriving in Scotland to drive non-emergency ambulances, horror reports of Covid death surges, hospital drains killing weans and a 200 year-old palm tree.
