DfES Press Office

Can you come back to me please? Easy peasy question really. Will Ruth Kelly be launching the LGBT History Month initiative? You know it’ll be a great opportunity for her to reach out to the Gay voters who are suspicious about her missing those key votes.

Obviously its important that children should be given education on the place of lesbian, gay bisexual and trans-gendered people in history. The initiative will mean that children will be asked about historical figures who may have been lesbian or gay, and will learn about the dangers of homophobic abuse.

Any progress on reducing the 20% of school-leavers who are functionally illiterate? Get back to me when you have a moment…

Quote of the Day

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…
