Seaford School Bans Churchill


 

Seaford Head School in Seaford has removed Churchill and JK Rowling from the names of school houses after students questioned whether these figures "represent the school's core values".

A letter to parents, students and guardians said that war-time Prime Minister Winston Churchill was "a figure who promoted racism and inequality, unfairly imprisoning and torturing many".

It added that students did not feel Harry Potter author JK Rowling was a a suitable representative, because of her recent words about the trans community.

The letter, addressed from the school's students, is quoted by the Argus

"Churchill could be considered an important historical figure. However, we are now more aware that Churchill was a figure who promoted racism and inequality, unfairly imprisoning and torturing many."

"Could be considered.."!

The article doesn't mention who was eligible to vote, the turnout and whether a balanced discussion was held before the vote.

Sanitising history and saving modern day sensitive feelings, to avoid the unpleasant reality that human beings have both positive and negative traits will end in tears.
