She's at it again:Educational Extremists Strike Again
CHILDREN as young as five will apparently be getting lessons on transgender equality in thousands of schools as the Department for Education – which should have enough to do with improving literacy and numeracy, combating grade inflation and making exams demanding – considers adding "the teaching of equality and diversity including transgender equality" to the curriculum.
You can safely bet a pound to a penny that diversity will not include the right to a Christian conscience.
What on earth can a five- year-old possibly know or appreciate about transgender issues? Have our ministers completely forgotten how they saw the world at five?
Do they simply not understand simplicity? Is the conversation at the Cameron breakfast table oriented around gender issues?
And what about parents?
Supposing they do not want their children introduced to such issues at such a tender age? Is it any wonder that some parents are willing to endure the hassle and challenge of educating their young at home? Or that others make do and mend to afford private education?
