Anti-bigotry plan for nurseries

From the beeb:
"A programme to tackle sectarian behaviour in children as young as three could be launched in Scotland.
[...]
The programme would be aimed at steering young children away from bullying, racism and sectarianism.

It would use cartoons and puppets to encourage children to respect people's racial, cultural and physical differences."
It's not that this isn't a fabulous idea - although to be honest it probably isn't - it's just that it might help matters just a tad if we didn't herd the nation's youth into two different kinds of schools after they're done with nursery, as I see Mr Eugenides has already pointed out. As I've said before, we're working with a small gene pool up here as it is.
