Comments: More about religion in schools

To put in the question "free to teach only about their own religion" simply isn't a true reflection of most faith schools. Ask a loaded question to get the answer you want.

Campaigners who want schools not to teach about any religion, or to downplay the position of religion in society, are not thinking about equipping young people for life in the modern world.

Yet again , the issue is the privatisation of education by Gove with his pathetic free schools and academies free from local authority control. For nearly 5 years the shameful Liberal Democrats have given him a free hand.

I suspect the survey didn't mention the state getting to use several thousand school sites that are not owned by the state without paying any rent.
