The Government's clumsy effort to appease the sex-education lobby threatens parental rights.
SPUC was criticising comments about sex education by Elizabeth Truss, the education and childcare minister. Mrs Truss said in a letter published in the Times yesterday (15 April) that just as much sex education will be included in the new National Curriculum for England.
