No gay relationships at Protestant schools

The Netherlands’ 165 staunchly Protestant schools are standing firm on sacking homosexual teachers who are in a relationship with another man or woman, the Volkskrant reports on Tuesday.


The schools made their standpoint clear in a paper on homosexuality which was presented to education minister Ronald Plasterk on Monday.
Plasterk said the law does allow education on the basis of religious convictions but said he was still in talks with schools about what to do if a gay teacher married.
