Italian Minister of Education angered at wild rumors about LGBT plot in State schools

Yesterday the Italian Minister of Education Stefania Giannini warned that the Government is ready to press charges against anyone affirming that the recent school reform will expose the children to “gender theories” in the State schools.

The rumors were triggered by a provision of the reform about sex education, which was further clarified by the Government under pressure by the conservative New Right party in order to dispel such fears.

The amendment did not stop some ultra-conservative individuals and organizations from launching appeals to the parents, inviting them not to authorize any extracurricular activity by the school.
