"Rainbow Friday" May Violate Polish Constitution and Education Law

Country: Poland

Date of incident: October 26, 2018

Category: Government Restrictions

Attack against: Faith / Morals

Area of case: Education



For the third year in a row, more than 200 schools across Poland participated in "Rainbow Friday," a campaign to celebrate and promote acceptance of LGBT issues. The Ordo Iuris Institute for Legal Culture examined whether such an addition to the school curriculum violated the education law and interfered with the constitutionally protected rights of parents to direct the education of their children. It encouraged parents who objected to their children's participation in the program to inform the schools of their wishes, and to report violations if their children are compelled to attend.
