BBC News – Police are investigating threatening messages sent to Sarah Hewitt-Clarkson, head teacher at Anderton Park Primary School, Birmingham, over lessons on LGBT equality and her branding protests there as “aggressive.”
There have been seven weeks of protests outside the school, and hundreds of pupils were kept away on Monday. Birmingham MP Jess Phillips called for an exclusion zone at the site to limit where people can demonstrate.
The city council is looking into Phillips’ request, with the authority’s leader saying some outside the school are “peddling hatred.” The complaints, mainly from Muslims, focus on lesson books featuring cross-dressing children and gay families. The protests’ leader says that that amounts to “social engineering.”
