Teachers leaders are calling (again) for faith schools to be closed because they are "divisive".
Leaders of the National Union of Teachers are expected to support a long-term drive to create a wholly secular school system when they convene for their annual Easter conference in Cardiff this week.
They want to get rid of them and Christian assemblies as they "undermine community cohesion".
There have been faith schools in this country for as long as there has been education - the first schools were set up by the church - and in the hundreds of years that they existed they have never undermined community cohesion before - so why now?
It's not the fact that there are faith based schools that causes the problem - it is the left wing doctrine, multiculturalism and drippy liberal progressive teaching that does. It's not faith we want to kick out of schools - it's left wing ideology.
