Scotland to include LGBT+ rights in curriculum nationwide without exemptions

Scotland has become the first country to adopt an LGBT+ inclusive curriculum policy, requiring the history of LGBT+ rights movements, the denouncement of transphobia and homophobia, and exploration of LGBT+ identity to be taught in all schools. Importantly, there are no opt-outs or religious exemptions for the policy.
