Faith Schools: Abolish or More Effectively Regulate
Faith schools are unnecessary, potentially divisive and a risk to the fabric of British society.
At their best, they only perform a function that should be the aim of all schools- to provide a good, well-rounded education for children and young people.
This petition calls on the Govt. to consider implementing the following:
1. The banning of all faith schools, and a return to socially and religiously integrated education.
2. In the meantime, the creation of a new inspectorate to monitor and regulate faith schools to ensure that the curriculum is properly adhered-to and that divisiveness is not promoted.
3. A recognition that education is a secular matter, and that religion should be left out of the classroom - with the exception of religious education lessons that promote acceptance, tolerance and debate.
You can't sign this petition because it is now closed. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!
