Religious Education in Schools

RE under threat in schools, MPs claim

Campaigners are to form an all new party parliamentary group (APPG) to focus on protecting the subject amid fears it is being sidelined after being omitted from the list of subjects recognised by the Government’s news English Baccalaureate.
The EBacc, introduced by Education Secretary Michael Gove, is awarded to teenagers who score at least a C at GCSE in English, maths, science, a foreign language and a humanities subject - limited to history or geography.
The exclusion of RE created a storm of protest, with campaigners arguing the move could see the subject marginalised in schools.
