Facilitating More Religious Segregation In Faith Schools Can Only Harm Social Cohesion

Despite Britain being one of the most secularised countries in the world, one third of all schools in England and Wales are faith schools, with an increasing number of minority faith schools opening, further fragmenting state education along religious and ethnic lines. A proliferation of faith-based schools may serve the needs of organised religion, but they will fail children, be bad for communities, and bad for Britain. The Government should think again.
