Redaction of references to homosexuality at Orthodox school

Post by Didge on Sat Mar 10, 2018 3:58 am

Recently concerns have been expressed about both unmonitored home schooling and unregistered schools.  Both may make it difficult for some children to access a broad curriculum and be prepared for modern life.  There have also been alarming reports  about the textbooks being used in some Muslim schools, and today the Guardian has published an account of how textbooks are being redacted in an Orthodox Jewish school in order to remove references to homosexuality, cover up women dressed in a way perceived to be immodest, and censor pictures of men and women socialising.

A spokesman for Yesodey Hatorah said it was “old news” and it was well known that the school redacted textbooks. “This policy has nothing to do homophobia or misogyny, but is to protect our girls from sexualisation in line with our parents’ wishes and religious beliefs,” he said.
This isn’t the first time this school’s been in the spotlight for censoring the curriculum – in 2013 they were discovered to have redacted exam questions on evolution.

Schools should not be teaching/promoting homosexuality to kids.

They should definitely be teaching it in appropriate sex ed classes. As for promoting homosexuality, I bet you can't cite one example of a school doing that.

They do promote it by teaching it... and by teaching it as somehow being right/normal/natural and equal to normal heterosexuality, when it is not!

Teaching is heresy...Galileo beware.
