Petition Amend the Equality Act 2010: National curriculum and protected characteristics

The Government should create a new ‘National Curriculum content review & reform’ section in the Equality Act, with the purpose of requiring content relating to Protected Characteristics to be structurally instituted throughout the National Curriculum.

More details

The Act’s Education Section in current form has no requirement for National Curriculum content to counteract a core source of prejudice, particularly against BAME people, Women and LGBT+ people, out of date unbalanced curricula content. The motivation behind the ‘History Month’ Movement [BHM, and LGBT+] and the Equality Act itself indicate the need for this action, as do Covid 19, recent events in the US and the ‘Me Too’ movement.
