The ongoing row about teaching young children equalities lessons relating to LGBT relationships is the subject of a BBC Panorama report tonight (15 July).
The programme comes after months of protests outside two Birmingham schools - Parkfield and Anderton Park - and will include an interview with the Government's chief adviser on countering extremism, Sara Khan.
Khan told the programme that the headteachers dealing with the protests should have been given more support.
Speaking about the Department for Education’s reaction to the situation, she said: “I think they were too slow to respond.
“There's a lot of confusion about what's actually being taught, and I think DfE could have played a very important role in clarifying to parents this is what's actually being taught, not the misinformation that we're seeing out there.
“It's a mob chanting and shouting and engaging in intimidating and threatening behaviour.
“And I think we have to recognise that and call it out for what it is.”
BBC Panorama - Sex Education: The LGBT Debate In Schools will be aired tonight at 8.30pm on BBC One.
