Faith Schools

Interesting article in the TES about increasing numbers of faith schools.

An Answer from Above? How the Church of England could become the driving force in state education

Reaction from Atheist and Humanist Society (and British Humanist Society)

"The British Humanist Association (BHA) has voiced its strong opposition to the proposals, writing with urgency to Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove and to all BHA members and supporters, describing the plans as ‘the single most threatening development in the area of ‘faith’ schools since their expansion began in 2001’.Obviously, we at the AHS are greatly concerned by the prospect of faith schools multiplying in the UK...which is why we echo the BHA'S call to arms."
