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 is this idea important?

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

  1. 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.
