Lords Want To Ban Bullying At Schools

Written by

The Lords want to ban anti-gay discriminations in the U.K schools and want that teachers train to fight against.

The schools minister, Lord Hill of Oareford, thinks teachers should have a formation in order to be able to detect homophobia signs.

"We have updated our advice to schools to make it clear that prejudice-based bullying such as homophobic bullying should not be tolerated. This advice signposts schools to specialist organisations, such as Stonewall, that can support them. Accountability in how schools tackle bullying will also be sharpened through the new Ofsted inspections framework."

Lord Collins of Highbury, who is openly gay, wishes more "tools to do the job," and added that "the minister therefore give an undertaking that Ofsted will investigate how schools respond to homophobic bullying when visiting them in future?"
