Teachers from a British County are under fire for telling victims of bullying to “act less gay” and wear their hair differently, according to the London Evening Standard. They defended this horrid advice by saying the the students were making themselves targets for bullying because of the way they carried themselves. The Essex County Council stated in a report that the teachers were not trained in how to handle the issue of bullying.
“Teachers received very little training at college around bullying and most would welcome additional support and guidance.”
The council simply reprimanded the teachers and asked them to think hard about their advice before they give it out to students.
What would you do if a teacher told your child to “act less gay?”
