The rest of the UK, please take notes.
Yesterday, it was announced that schools all over Scotland are to embed LGBTI-inclusive lessons into their future curriculum, which will require schools “to teach pupils about the history of LGBTI equalities and movements, as well as tackling homophobia and transphobia and exploring LGBTI identity”, as The Guardian reports.
This decision, which offers a great deal of promise for LGBTI campaigners throughout the UK and beyond, was overseen by the Scottish Time for Inclusive Education (TiE) campaign group. Their co-founder Jordan Daly, when speaking on their success, called the introduction of this new curriculum a “monumental victory for our campaign, and a historic moment for our country”.
