LGBTI lessons for Scots

Sunday Star-Times - - WORLD -

The Scot­tish govern­ment will re­quire all state schools to in­tro­duce a cur­ricu­lum that ex­plains the his­tory of les­bian, gay, bi­sex­ual, trans­gen­der and in­ter­sex (LGBTI) ac­tivism, ed­u­cates stu­dents on the use of LGBTI ter­mi­nol­ogy, and dis­cusses ways to ad­dress ho­mo­pho­bia. ‘‘Our ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem must sup­port ev­ery­one to reach their full po­ten­tial,’’ Deputy First Min­is­ter John Swin­ney said. The move comes af­ter a cam­paign called Time For In­clu­sive Ed­u­ca­tion pre­sented sug­ges­tions to the govern­ment. In June, Scot­tish law­mak­ers voted to par­don men who were charged with par­tic­i­pat­ing in ho­mo­sex­ual acts.
