Furious Muslim parents reportedly withdrew 600 children from Parkfield Community School today after claiming they were being ‘brainwashed’ over gay lifestyles.
The pupils were taken out of classes as the row surrounding LGBT lifestyles being taught openly in the classroom escalated.
Some reports suggest as many as 80 per cent of the children at Parkfield Community School in Saltley have been removed – around 600.
Kids have been withdrawn over the school’s “undermining of parental rights and aggressively promoting homosexuality”, according to Alum Rock Community Forum.
The forum adds: “Dialogue, petitioning and protests by parents have been repeated and arrogantly ignored.
“Our children, Our Choice – Work with parents not against them.”
The school has sent out a letter to parents appealing with them to stop the weekly protests for fears it is disrupting and upsetting the children, teachers and families.
