Commissioned by Stonewall, the analysis shows 60% of British people believe it is right to teach pupils about different kinds of families, including same-sex parenting. ITV reports.
The research – conducted by nfpSynergy, which surveyed 1,000 adults – found that almost one in five (17%) either disagreed or strongly disagreed with LGBT-inclusive teaching at primary school level.
Paul Twocock, chief executive of Stonewall, said: “LGBT-inclusive education is life-changing teaching for so many young people, which is why it’s so powerful to see so much of the British public support the new legislation.”
