Teachers and parents have made teaching five-year-olds about porn part of our national conversation; a sign that action is long overdue.
Michael Gove faced the wrath of headteachers over the state of the education system, just hours after they passed a vote of no confidence.
Education Secretary Michael Gove has taken on the teaching profession - now it is the turn of the social workers.

There is no place for explicit materials in the classroom or school, even in the course of teaching about their dangers, but many young people are exposed to such materials on the internet and phones.
In the face of this young people need to know how to cope with and avoid these distorted views of relationships.
42% of parents believe schools should teach children about the dangers of pornography as soon as they are old enough to use the internet, a survey suggests.
It reveals that the majority of parents do not want it to be left to them alone to educate their youngsters about the controversial issue, and a large proportion think that pupils as young as five or six should be given lessons on the subject.
The survey, which questioned around 1,000 parents, found that six in ten parents are worried or very worried about their sons and daughters seeing violent or sexual material on the web.
But the poll also reveals that the majority (80%) of parents feel confident in protecting their children online.
While just over half (51%) said that pupils should not be taught about the dangers of pornography until they are teenagers, 42% said that they should be educated as soon as they are old enough to access the internet, even if they are as young as five or six.
More than eight in ten (83%) said issues around pornography should form part of sex education lessons.
Headteachers have declared they have no confidence in the Government's education policies at the National Association of Head Teachers union conference in Birmingham.
Education Secretary Michael Gove met some of the teachers at a question and answer session - where he faced a barrage of hostile questions.
Mr Gove refused to apologise for what he said was "trying to raise standards in classrooms".
ITV News correspondent Romilly Weeks reports from Birmingham:
Responding to a union leader's description of him as a "fanatical personal trainer," Mr Gove said: "You'd have to be a fanatical personal trainer to want to take me on".
He received no applause when he was introduced at a question and answer session at the National Association of Head Teachers' conference in Birmingham.
Education Secretary Michael Gove got the first round of applause of his address to the NAHT conference when he said he is "having second thoughts" about his plans for overhauling the teaching of history of schools.
He said he still wanted there to be an emphasis on "chronology" and "understanding narrative of this country," but that he did not want only British history to be taught, as some believe.

We need to raise standards so we have an education system that is on a par with the world's best.
Our academies programme is turning around hundreds of underperforming schools, we are introducing a world class curriculum and our reforms to exams will create qualifications that will keep pace with the demands of universities and employers. Surely this is something the NAHT should be supporting.
We will not stand by when schools are failing our children. Sponsored academies are turning around hundreds of underperforming schools and ensuring pupils are given every chance to fulfil their potential.
Headteachers have declared they have no confidence in the Government's education policies at the NAHT union conference in Birmingham.
President of the National Association of Head Teachers, Bernadette Hunter told the union's conference in Birmingham that current Government policies on education are "damaging schools" and negatively affecting pupils' lives.
