Issue No. 2173

Around 70 teachers attended the NUT union’s LGBT conference last Saturday.

NUT president Martin Reed and general secretary Christine Blower signed a petition in a personal capacity condemning the BBC’s decision to invite the British National Party (BNP) onto Question Time.

Christine Blower also urged members to join the protest with her outside the BBC studio.

The conference passed a motion prioritising the campaign for LGBT rights in education.
