Andrew Copson talks ‘faith’ schools on Beyond Belief
BBC Radio 4′s Beyond Belief this week featured British Humanist Association Chief Exec Andrew Copson. The programme was a ‘faith’ schools-themed edition. Andrew explained that admissions and employment policies do indeed discriminate, that many schools with religious character do not follow parts of the curriculum, that (not necessarily deliberate) socio-economic segregation is inflated by ‘faith’ schools, and that with ethnic segregation at least implicit in much of the division occurring in ‘faith’ schools they are “storing up social problems for the future”.
