A 21-page document providing local authorities with advice on how to deal with protests outside schools over LGBT-inclusive teaching has been issued by the government, according to the BBC.
The document is a response to the demonstrations which have been taking place across several months outside two predominantly Muslim Birmingham primary schools - Anderton Park and Parkfield.
The protesters are unhappy with the schools’ teaching of lessons that include information about LGBT relationships, arguing that they are not age-appropriate and go against Islamic faith.
The BBC reports that the new government advice is aimed at ‘encouraging parents to talk to their school about concerns, rather than protest at the school gates’, and is also intended to help local authorities ‘to consider options if protests do materialise’.
