British Labour leader insists that the only way to avoid bullying of LGBT students is to add the LGBT issues to the school curriculum. Such addition will be a part of Corbyn’s LGBT+ manifesto. He explains: “As part of our commitment to equality and inclusivity we will advance LGBT+ inclusion in the education system by updating the national curriculum to reflect LGBT+ historical figures and LGBT+ rights.” [We will] work with schools to promote a safe and inclusive environment for LGBT+ young people and encourage the adoption of inclusive practices and language to ensure that LGBT+ students achieve positive educational outcomes.”

“Education shapes attitudes and having a positive educational experience and outcome lays the foundation for the rest of your life. More than half of lesbian, gay and bi school pupils have experienced direct bullying – we want to dramatically reduce that figure”, he went on, “It is why we have put forward polices to work with schools to promote a safe and inclusive environment for LGBT+ young people and encourage the adoption of inclusive practices and language to ensure that LGBT+ students achieve positive educational outcomes, to reflect LGBT+ historical figures and LGBT+ rights.”
