Schools in The UK Will be Rated for How ‘Trans-Friendly’ They Are by an Education Review Group.

Bernadette John, a director at the Good Schools Guide, announced the move yesterday and said the issue of transsexualism in schools has been “building up” in recent months.

The announcement comes shortly after a Christian couple withdrew their six-year-old son from a Church of England school after it failed to consult with parents on new rules regarding transsexualism.

Enquiries

John said ‘inspectors’ from the guide will “certainly be asking headmasters” in the future about their treatment of transsexual pupils.

John said the guide plans to draw up a list of schools that have a ‘good’ track record on transsexual issues and “might make a point” of highlighting schools that are “utterly outstanding”.

There are reportedly around 150 schools in the UK – out of tens of thousands – that have already adopted gender-neutral uniform policies.

Their political correctness has already resulted in good rural schools penalized for not having enough “diversity”. Academics, socialization, irrelevant.

Torah Law forbids gender confusion. An education review group cannot change this fact.
