Labour MP Roger Godsiff has tabled a debate about parents’ involvement in equalities teaching. The debate will take place today (Tuesday 25 June).
Anderton Park, one of the Birmingham schools at the centre of the ongoing row about the teaching of equalities lessons, is located in Mr Godsiff’s constituency.
The MP was recently reported by shadow education secretary Angela Rayner to the party’s chief whip, Nick Brown, for “discriminatory and irresponsible” comments after he backed the protesters who were demonstrating outside Anderton Park.
In a video in which he is seen with protest organiser Shakeel Afsar, Mr Godsiff said: “I think you have a just cause and I regret the fact that it hasn't been reciprocated by the head teacher.”
He continued: “I will continue to try and fight your corner because you're right.
“Nothing more, nothing less. You're right.”
Mr Godsiff was formally reprimanded by Mr Brown and has been warned that he must not repeat such conduct in the future.
