Did anyone catch the Richard Dawkins documentary on More4 last night about faith schools? It was a very good and very worrying hour. For those of you outside the UK, some background. In the UK about a third of public schools are so called "faith schools". They receive funding from the government and get to include an unregulated faith element in the syllabus... Muslim schools teach about Islam, Jewish schools about Judaism etc. They also get to set faith based criteria for parents who want there children to go to the school. What does OT think of these? There are a few questions at work here: 1) Should they be publicly funded? 2) Should they be regulated by the government? 3) Should they have to follow the national syllabus? 4) Should thy be allowed to focus R.E. solely on one religion? 5) Is it moral to be teaching religion as truth to children?
