Stop state-funded faith schools discriminating against children based on their parent's faith

Additional Information

This is a petition to call for the government to prevent state-funded faith schools using a child’s religion (or lack of religion) to discriminate against that child when allocating school places. Additionally, it is to call for balanced, realistic and un-biased teaching of all religions in these schools rather than teaching that specific religion as fact. -----
Many state primary schools are affiliated with local churches and, as such, priority is given to children whose parents attend a specific church when assigning places in the school. This is nothing but discrimination and should be outlawed. -----
We believe that any privately run school should have the right to discriminate based on faith but we believe that in a fair and free society, religion or lack of religion should not be used by the state to discriminate against individuals, especially children.
