Schools should be secular, mixed, presenting religion as a comparative subject

1 Comment 18th May 2015

State schools should be secular, mixed sex and present religion as a comparative subject, thus encouraging greater integration, understanding of gender roles, all faiths and cultures, rather than promoting one as the only right path and way of life.They should be well funded and easily accessed countrywide. Private, independent schools should fund themselves, without financial help, either from the State or charitable status.

Why does this matter?

This would go some way to reducing the power of vested interests to control matters of faith, politics and finances, enabling schools to concentrate on the fundamentals of a child’s learning process. M.T.Parker

One Response to Schools should be secular, mixed, presenting religion as a comparative subject

  1. George Sherrey says:

    Faith in schools has no place, I have no choice but to send my children to a faith school, and I am constantly trying to deprogramme my kids.

    The majority of other parents are in a similar position.
