"ERO has received a large number of questions regarding the special review of Bethlehem College..."
I'm guessing that Special Character is fancy school language for homophobia.
The problem I see is they may develop systems and procedures with accompanying documentation but carry on as normal.
It will continue to be unsafe for any student who doesn’t completely comply with their “norms” , say a girl is a bit of a tomboy or a boy excels at drama and shows emotional intelligence let alone any rainbow kids
I feel ERO needs to tell them funding will be withdrawn until they make real changes
Item 1 would appear to be an own goal. Admitting that they haven’t changed their beliefs, (or presumably behaviour) but just crossed out the text. Who thought that was going to be acceptable?
Love your work, David. That’s actually initially heartening to read! That ERO are pursuing just how the school are fulfilling their legal obligations to care for all their students. Looking forward to seeing where their final report lands.
👍🏾Keep up the good work 👏 I don't want my tax dollars going to traumatising the next generation.
Hiding behind the guise of “special character” is bs. My kids go to a public integrated catholic high school with openly gay & trans kids. There are no anti lgbtq teaching, or refusal to support those children because it’s a catholic school.
Thank you for following up on this and no giving up on these kids! My mama heart is thankful for you ❤️
So this is definitely a step in the right direction but what happens next when the report is officially filed? Does the school have a deadline to make improvements by? Do they just lose funding in a major way if they dont comply?I feel like my brain already knows this information but can't remember for some reason!
