This is extremely discouraging. This is exactly what those horribly bigoted parents in that Birmingham school last year were protesting for. The right to withdraw their children inclusive teaching.

I’m shocked and saddened that Parliament provided exactly the exception they were looking for.

Every child deserves to learn about diversity and inclusion, no matter how bigoted their parents are.

This is deeply disturbing.
