British Ultra-Orthodox School Cited For Lack of Gay Curriculum

An ultra-Orthodox girls school in London failed a government inspection. The reason? The school continues to not teach LGBT awareness.

“This restricts pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and does not promote equality of opportunity in ways that take account of differing lifestyles,” inspectors reported.

Vishnitz Girls School has 212 pupils aged three to eight, and charges £5,200 (about $6,800) in tuition. While British private schools don’t follow the same curriculum standards as public schools, they are required to meet Ofsted standards regarding sex and relationship education.

If the school does not meet these standards, it may be forced to close.
