@2fallsagain just tagging you as I know you are SSAUK (wouldn't be surprised if you have a speaker on the programme?! 🤞)

They posed some qs:

Do you think dangers if porn should be taught i schools or more focus about not accessing it online (paraphrasing.)

'Are you happy with how RSE is taught in your children's school ?'

I can confirm Tanya will be on woman's hour this morning talking about RSE in schools.

WarriorN · 27/03/2023 08:35

Thanks Warrior.

Very interested to tune in to this.

I wonder whether we'll hear much of the usual:
"teaching the wholly inappropriate stuff is only happening in a few places"
"and in any case they'll see much worse online".

Shame it's not Emma Barnett presenting.

WinterTrees · 27/03/2023 10:13

Yes, this is definitely a discussion that would really benefit from Emma Barnett's hardline handling.

WarriorN · 27/03/2023 10:18

I hope it's one that they will continue to return to as it's not a one off and done topic.

Very important in the context of vagw and girls too.

All teachers are out of their depth with this.

And the ones who think they are, may not be the most appropriate individuals.

So they turn to the web.

Who ever is speaking now is very good on the issues that teachers are facing.

ASCL denies what is happening in schools. SSA have been highlighting concerns to them for years. The previous president of ASCL employed Equaliteach in her own Trust.

2fallsfromSSA · 27/03/2023 10:27

There are many issues in schools. It needs investment and regulation.

nauticant · 27/03/2023 10:32

Again, the tone is that if everyone means well then things are generally OK. This is not what safeguarding it about.

WarriorN · 27/03/2023 10:34

It's not just vetting outside agencies coming in and a teacher staying in the room.

It's all teachers downloading things off the internet and teaching it without knowing what they're actually delivering

Sometimes the most well intentioned person isn't the most appropriate person to work with children.

It's bizarre that we've seen charities whose sole purpose purports to be RSE (but usually turns out to be a vehicle for propagating Queer Theory), pop up. We don't have this for maths or English, or history or D&T. Why? Why this industry on this topic? That alone is pause for thought.

Nuala McGovern does seem to be in minimisation mode. The mother of a child who is skeptical about what was taught to her child is having her account caveated all over because things she's saying haven't been checked by the BBC and third parties mentioned have not had a right to reply.

2fallsfromSSA · 27/03/2023 10:42

She has been interrupted more times than either of the others.
