Christian Parents Fear Sex Presentations Will Be Forced on Kids After UK Mandates Sex Ed in Schools
Education Secretary Justine Greening announced on Wednesday that all children from the age of four will be taught
about “safe and healthy relationships,” though parents will still be allowed the option to withdraw their children from such classes.
Tully said that the decision was a “bleak day for parents” and accused the government of undermining the role of parents.
As BBC pointed out, sex education had so far been mandatory only in council-run schools.
“At the moment, many schools teach sex and relationships education,” Greening told BBC.
“We need to be protecting them from things, working with parents to ensure that what they might need to know — which will be different for every child child, different in every context across the country —is properly looked at,” Christian Concern’s chief executive, Andrea Williams, told BBC.
