Faith schools accused of 'religious racism' for turning away pupils

Post by Guest on Thu Jan 28, 2016 8:37 am

Faith schools have been accused of adopting an approach bordering on  “religious racism” by turning away pupils simply on the grounds of their religion. Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain told a conference it would be “intolerable” if schools were to close the door to pupils because of their race - yet it was permitted to segregate them on religious grounds. Dr Romain, chairman of Accord - the group which campaigns for equal access to faith schools - said it meant you had “Hindus over here, Muslims there and Catholics over there”. “It is almost religious racism,” he added.

I will say it again, ban all faith based schools.
Schools should be run neutrally on all aspects. Where only secularism allows for such neutrality to teach all faiths and not discriminate against any faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality etc.
