Teachers are branding thousands of children racist or homophobic following playground squabbles.
More than 20,000 pupils aged 11 or younger were last year put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word ‘gaylord’.
Some of them are even from nursery schools where children are no older than three.
Comments as balanced and reasonable as you'd expect:
This is pure madness.

Can this country get any crazier when they are now classing young children as 'bigots' because of playground spats and name calling ? What bunch of politically correct morons thought of this one. Could we please have them named and shamed because they are idiots.

This was a piece of sinister legislation dumped on innocent little kids by a sinister totalitarian political party.

"Teachers are branding thousands of children racist or homophobic following playground squabbles.

Proving yet again that not only are teachers PC but, they are stupid and lack common sense.

When I was a child, we were just told: "sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me" if someone called us names... How times change. "Broccoli Head" did make me laugh though!

another mistake by the labour government. Its like living under Stalin. Why are they allowed to make reports on our children and not require evidence. Teachers can say anything. Are you allowed to see what they write about your children. As for discipline 90% of teachers are not capable or to scared of what will happen to then to enforce it. If the government allowed them to teach and not get bogged down with paperwork things might be better. Well done the labour government is there no end to the mess you have got this country into.

The marxist police state has crept up on Britain by stealth, just as federal Europe has - by pernicious Labour salami-slicing regulations and legislation, the complete package even with it's own army of Stasi spies (the teachers).

PC nonsense and how the left want to control all expressions they do not approve of. Even by three year olds. These people are the biggest, totalatarian facists that this world has ever seen. And they think they're right; very, very scary.

What a pathetic sick country we have built for ourselves. Unbelievable. The teachers who 'snitch' on these babies need their warped heads examined. They should refuse to do anything and the nutter that thought this one up needs to see a shrink!
