Staff united to stop school gay bashing


Staff from schools and college throughout Oldham joined forces to receive training to help them fight homophobia in the classroom, Oldham Evening Chronicle today.

The move came after a survey showed that 85 percent of local teachers witnessed homophobic abuse on a daily basis and 90 percent claimed to have seen specific pupils suffering bullying or discrimination.

The survey, by the Oldham National Union of Teachers, also found that the majority of employees would welcome specific training on how to tackle the problem in local schools.
