Argument at school over section 28


Becky is pleased that Section 28 (clause 28) has been repealed because she’s thinking of becoming a teacher. “I wouldn't be even thinking about being a teacher if it wasn't for Section 28 being abolished. It was something I had to deal with when I was at school in Worcester. I had a big argument with my Deputy Head at the time. Even though I was 16 I was like 'Why haven't we got an official thing on lesbians on homophobia and stuff?’ and his response was ‘Section 28 says we can't,' - so I was waiting for that one to go.”
