In March 2019 crowds of parents gathered outside a primary school in central Birmingham. The angry, placard carrying mob tapped their feet and welded signs reading “My child, my choice”, “let kids be kids”
Their concern? A program called No Outsiders which taught that bullying was bad and no one should be made to feel isolated. Oh, included in that was a note that same sex relationships were ok. But who won the court case..... parents of the school?
This episode covers education in schools, the rise and fall of section 28 and a quick journey into Aarons experience of teaching sex education in schools (it was rough!)
