Homophobia in schools

One of the most senior appointments in the new Cabinet is that of Jacqui Smith - the new Home Secretary.

Newsround failed to report a petition to Jacqui Smith when she was Minister for Schools. The petition was asking for more to be done to stamp out homophobia in schools - (YouTube video) (also see blog 29 December 2005). Let's hope that stories such as this, which are self-evidently relevant, get reported properly on Newsround in future.
