Statement on equalities and relationships teaching in Birmingham schools

Published: Friday, 8th February 2019

Cllr John Cotton, cabinet member for community safety and equalities, has made the following statement on equalities teaching in Birmingham schools:

“Birmingham City Council has for many years championed programmes such as No Outsiders as a way of promoting the values of the 2010 Equality Act. Equality is the law of the land and a right for all, and people can’t pick and choose which parts of the Act they support. We will always as a council stand up for the rights of all our children, whoever they are and whatever kind of family they are from.”
