According to a new report on sex education in Ireland, Catholic schools in the country may have to start including LGBTI topics. The Oireachtas Education Committee released a draft of the report. It reveals some dramatic changes in the country’s sex ed, such as including LGBTI relationships in the curriculum. The report applies to both primary and secondary schools. According to its wording, as described by the Irish Independent, LGBTI relationships would be taught in schools ‘without distinction as to their heterosexual counterparts’. It also recommends new legislation requiring that even Catholic schools must implement the new guidelines. For these schools, the Department of Education should give ‘directions’.
