Pupils at primary and secondary schools across Brighton and Hove will be given “early intervention” lessons to prevent abuse.
The lessons for boys and girls from six years up will teach them not to hit, to be nice and how to build healthy relationships, as part of a £500,000 council strategy to cut domestic violence in the city.
I’d have thought that would be better spent on teaching them to read, write and add up, personally…
Of course, there has to be special favours for identity groups:
As part of the programme, £100,000 will be used to help reduce violence in black and ethnic minority groups and to help the RISE service, which serves victims of domestic violence and children.
Now, why would they need ‘special services’ in this? And do they really think that a couple of lessons of, say, half an hour each, are going to combat what they see every single day?
