Gransnetters with an interest in this subject might like to think about making their views known on this link to a government consultation which ends on 12th December.
One of the issues that concerns me is the fact that, in their attempt to create more "Free Schools" they are encouraging faith schools and propose to change the rules so that faith schools do not have to take 50% of those from other religions or none, but can now have a 100% one faith intake.
Some of the questions in the consultation ask how the government can encourage and monitor a multi-faith education in these new one faith schools! Crazy or what? - why not simply have multi-faith schools?
The government PREVENT policy is compulsory in schools in an attempt to reduce radicalisation - and then they come up with this barmy idea! Sigh.
