|Gypsies and the UK Conservative Party|
Britain's "Conservative" government is worried that transsexuals and
gypsies are not getting enough attention from teachers.
Is there really any difference between the so-called UK "Conservative" Party and the insane left?
Under a Conservative government British schools will be penalized if they fail to improve the progress of ‘vulnerable’ groups of pupils such as those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual.
New Ofsted guidelines reveal that heads of primary and secondary schools must show their education ‘meets the needs of the range of pupils’ in their classrooms, including gipsy children reports the UK Daily Mail.
Critics hit out at the inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual pupils in an Ofsted list of groups that could be monitored for signs of progress.
They insist that head teachers will not wish to pry into the private lives of pupils and claim that youngsters should be treated as individuals, not groups.
There are also fears that teachers will feel forced to categorise pupils by their sexuality at a time when they are young and impressionable.
New Ofsted guidance says: ‘It is important to test the school’s response to individual needs by observing how well it helps all pupils to make progress and fulfil their potential, especially those whose needs, dispositions, aptitudes or circumstances require particularly perceptive and expert teaching and/or additional support.
‘In any particular school, such pupils may include disabled pupils; boys; girls; groups of pupils whose prior attainment may be different from that of other groups; those who are academically more able; pupils for whom English is an additional language; minority ethnic pupils; gipsy, Roma and traveller children; pupils known to be eligible for free school meals; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual pupils; young carers, pupils from low income backgrounds and other vulnerable groups.’
Brian Lightman of the Association of School and College Leaders criticized the highlighting of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual pupils.
The new Ofsted framework, which will come into effect in January, applies to all primary and secondary schools in England.
