A private Jewish girls’ school in the United Kingdom failed to meet governmental standards in education related to homosexuality and “gender reassignment.”
Last month, after Vishnitz Girls School in London failed its third inspection in less than a year, state inspectors accused it of not promoting “a full understanding of fundamental British values.” State inspectors concluded:
[Students] are not taught explicitly about issues such as sexual orientation. … This restricts pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and does not promote equality of opportunity in ways that take account of differing lifestyles.
State inspectors reported on the school’s management’s awareness of government mandates coercing it to push government-driven curriculum:
[They] recognise the requirement to teach about the protected characteristics as set out in the Equality Act 2010. However, they acknowledge that they do not teach pupils about all the protected characteristics, particularly those relating to gender re-assignment and sexual orientation. This means that pupils have a limited understanding of the different lifestyles and partnerships that individuals may choose in present-day society.
The Independent hyped the Jewish school’s failure to comply with left-wing government mandates as a failure to educate about “LGBT issues.”
Failure to comply with government mandates for education may lead to the school’s closure.
If education continues to be further centralized and administered by the government over time, similar state coercion of educational institutions can be expected stateside.
