The Scotsman reports that Scotland will be the first country to teach queer history as part of its standard school curriculum [paywall]. Molly Sprayregan summarizes:
While the new curricula were created, in part, for students to receive a more well-rounded education, the Scottish government also hopes the lessons will help reduce bullying. LGBTQ+ youth in the U.K. are twice as likely to have been bullied in the past year than their straight, cisgender classmates, according to a June study released by the youth advocacy group Just Like Us.
England and Wales made sex-ed LGBT-inclusive last year; the Scottish measure, however, seeks to integrate inclusivity throughout the curriculum.
