Seoul education office’s push to protect LGBT students and eradicate discrimination at schools is facing opposition after the office released its 2021-23 draft plan to protect the human rights of students. In the draft plan, the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education included its plan to support and protect minority pupils –- from multicultural to LGBT students — to make schools are free from hatred and discrimination for their safety and welfare. The education office’s inclusion of protecting “LGBT students” in the plan became a source of contention, with opponents claiming that such a clause would “encourage homosexuality” in schools. The SMOE unveiled the comprehensive plan for students’ rights protection for the years 2021-23 in December to gather feedback before finalizing it in February. The plan has five policy goals and four specific tasks for each category.
