Out Conservative MP and former education secretary Justine Greening has said LGBT+ young people “frankly deserve better” relationships and sex education (RSE) in England’s schools. She noted that regardless of their backgrounds, children should know about the diversity of love, families and relationships. Speaking on ITV News’ podcast series Acting Prime Minster, Greening said that it is necessary for schools to let the children know that whatever model of relationships they choose, it will never be bad and it will never be wrong. “We owe it to them to make sure our schools are able to do a proper approach, a modern approach, on relationships and sex education,” she said. The MP for Putney’s comments come following protests organized by some conservative religious parents, of mostly Islamic faith, who oppose LGBT-inclusive curricula. While Greening was education secretary, the government passed the Children and Social Work Act (2017), which she was involved in developing.
