Schools should educate, not indoctrinate – campaign responds to Government consultation

Commenting on the announcement of the Government’s Relationships and Sex Education consultation exercise, Thomas Pascoe, Campaign Director of the Coalition for Marriage, said:

“Under these proposals, the leading agent in the early sexualisation of children would be the state itself.

“There is no ‘age-appropriate’ way to teach primary school age children about homosexual relationships or transgenderism. We should be teaching young children broad values of respect and tolerance, not ordering them to accept adult sexual relationships which they are far too young to understand.

“At secondary school level, marriage needs to be taught as a gold-standard, not one option amongst a bewildering multitude.

“It is imperative that parents and teachers use this consultation exercise to tell Theresa May, Justine Greening and the country as a whole that parents want our schools system to stand for education, not indoctrination.”
