3. "Program to take on homophobia in schools"
I wonder whether, amid moves against "homophobia" and, so to speak, "Holocaust"ophobia, we could see some action against the kind of Catholicophobia which motivated the two anti-Catholic letters published, under the respective headlines of "Vatican bluster" and "Saintly hiatus", in the Herald on the same day as this story was:
[...] The Education Minister, Verity Firth, has announced a $250,000 program to tackle homophobia in schools. The program, ''Proud Schools'', will be trialled at 12 high schools in Sydney and the Hunter and on the Central Coast.
[...] The program will include teacher training and workshops with students and parents.
[...] The 12 schools to trial the program this year will be announced after consultation with school communities.
The Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society is preparing a paper that will identify how schools can improve support for young gay people.
A committee comprising government and non-government agencies will monitor the program and report back to Ms Firth's office.
A spokesman for Ms Firth said while strategies to tackle homophobia were embedded in welfare programs, this was the first homophobia-specific initiative to be developed.
