The education secretary of the UK funds 1 million pounds to overcome bullying of LGBT people at schools. More than a half of LGBT middle school pupils are bullied and humiliated at schools for their sexual preferences. It is not the first anti-bullying project. £2 million was set aside last year to fund eight projects providing training on how to tackle anti-LGBT bullying. Nicky Morgan said: “Even a single child having their time at school blighted because of bullying is a tragedy. That’s why as both Minister for Equalities and Secretary of State for Education I am determined to do all I can to consign homophobic and transphobic bullying to the dustbin of history. The fantastic work being done by charities across the country, supported by the Government, has shown that tackling homophobia and transphobia in the classroom is possible and doesn’t have to be difficult. Today’s announcement will allow this vital work to continue and help even more schools to end this bullying once and for all”.
