Parents seek legal challenge to block Al Gore film in schools

Parents who claim
that an award-winning film on climate change is inaccurate and politically
motivated are threatening a legal challenge over the Government's decision to
send it to every secondary school, according to the Telegraph.

The film by Al
Gore, the former
US vice-president, won an Oscar for the best
documentary this year and Alan Johnson, the Education Secretary, says he wants
teachers to use it to stimulate children into discussing climate change and
global warming. 

But a group of
parents in the
say the
circulation of the film by the Government amounts to political indoctrination
and is in breach of the Education Act 2002. Derek Tipp, their spokesman, has
urged Mr Johnson to stop the film being sent out.

He said: “The
film goes well beyond the consensus view and is not therefore suitable material
to present to children who need to be given clear and balanced, factually
accurate information.”
