Largest UK Teachers Union Votes for More Drag Shows in Schools

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

The largest teacher’s union in the United Kingdom, the National Education Union (NEU), has voted in favor of a motion to welcome drag shows and promote LGBT events in primary schools across the country. The decision comes as part of a broader push to increase representation of transgender people in educational settings.  The motion states its purpose is to “challenge the heteronormative culture and curriculum that dominates education.” Critics of the move have argued that young children are too impressionable and will be confused by the appearance of drag performers.
