BBC under fire for using children in ‘social experiment’ to create ‘gender neutral school’

THE BBC was under fire last night for using impressionable young children in a “social experiment” to create a “gender neutral school” for a TV show.

Chris McGovern, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said: “There may be a case for legal action against the school and the BBC if any child has suffered psychological harm or distress, either in the short term or the long term.

“The BBC seems unable to separate fantasy from reality. The fantasy world created at Lanesend Primary School might be permissible in science fiction drama such as Doctor Who, but it can run close to child abuse when translated into real life.”
