Gay teacher resigns after parent protest
Assistant head Andrew Moffat leaves his primary school in Birmingham after a protest by parents who did not want their children taught that homosexuality is acceptable
When was the last time you ever heard a western politprop demand Â that Muslims back off?
A gay assistant head teacher who wrote books challenging homophobia for primary school pupils has resigned after parents complained that they did not want their children “learning that it’s OK to be gay”.
Andrew Moffat was a target for protests at Chilwell Croft Academy in Birmingham from mainly Muslim parents. It is the latest in a series of controversies at secular schools in the city.
A dozen schools in Birmingham are currently under investigation by the Department for Education over allegations of financial mismanagement and Islamic extremism.
Mr Moffat resigned from Chilwell Croft Academy’s primary school in December and will leave his post later this month. He said some Christian parents had also complained.
