At a meeting in Harrogate the National Education Union (NEU) the largest teacher’s union in UK has voted to encourage schools across the UK to welcome more drag queens in schools and promote more LGBT events.
The reason for voting for this is to challenge the “heteronormative culture” that according to the union dominates education.
“The NEU stated that it is committed to sharing teaching resources and strategies to support positive school experiences for all LGBT+ students including trans and non-binary students.
During the meeting one teacher accused Prime Minister Rishi Sunak of supporting “far-right attacks on drag queen storytime” and “the murder of beautiful souls like Brianna [Ghey] ” a trans-identifying teenager who was stabbed to death earlier this year. However the teacher later apologized and withdrew the specific allegation that Sunak supported the murder.
Conservative commentators organizations as well as members of parliament have criticized the NEU’s acceptance and promotion of drag queen story hour.”
Concerned that young children would be exposed to drag queens performing and dressing in a highly sexualized manner in the classroom Penistone and Stocksbridge MP Miriam Cates urged the NEU to review safeguarding principles.
The union is allegedly abandoning established safeguards in favor of “glitter and rainbows ” according to Tanya Carter a spokeswoman for the Safe Schools Alliance.
The U.K. government’s decision to oppose a Scottish law that would have altered how people officially alter their designated gender in Scotland partly motivated the NEU to promote drag queen story hour and other LGBT events.
All this leads us to ask “How come our Malta Union of Teachers (MUT) and the Union of Professional Educators (UPE) have not so far spoken up and issued any statement condemning the LGBTIQA+ agenda which is being pushed in our schools on our children?”
