School Girls

An orthodox Jewish girls’ elementary school in London has failed a government inspection for the third time because it refuses to teach students, who range in age from 3 to 8, about homosexuality and gender reassignment.

While the Vishnitz Girls School implemented several recommendations made by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, or Ofsted, during the first two inspections, it refused to abide by Ofsted’s requirement that students be taught about sexual orientation and gender reassignment.

That led to a third failed inspection. An Ofsted report found that Vishnitz violated the Equality Act 2010 because it “shielded from learning about certain differences between people, such as sexual orientation.”
