Occultists to run UK schools

#1  Postby chairman bill » Jul 10, 2016 5:02 pm

Purveyors of supernaturalism are bidding to run more UK schools. The cultic group who celebrate their god being nailed up on a cross, dying & then wandering around the middle east as a zombie, want to take advantage of the fuckwitted educational policy of 'free schools', giving them even more opportunity to fill young heads with the twisted thinking emanting from their death cult.

Church of England is bidding to open scores of free schools
Church sees government’s free schools programme as way of maintaining ratio of running one in four schools in England

The Church of England is bidding to open scores of new schools under the government’s free school programme to cement its place as the country’s largest provider of education.

It wants to run a quarter of the 500 free schools the government has pledged will open before 2020.

Stephen Conway, the bishop of Ely, said: “This is a moment to be bold and ambitious, and offer … a Christian vision for education.”

A report to the C of E synod, meeting in York, said the free schools programme was a “unique opportunity for the Church of England to renew and enhance its contribution to the education of our nation’s children.” It added that it was “an opportunity which should be seized wholeheartedly”.

The church wants to maintain its ratio of one in four schools in England being C of E, as educational provision expands over the coming years. It is also seeking to increase the number of secondary schools it runs.

There are 4,417 C of E primary schools and 209 secondary schools in England, and are attended by more than a million children in total.

This seems complex, anyway from the article:

They can set their own curriculum, but are subject to inspection by Ofsted, the schools’ watchdog, and must publish Sats, GCSE and A-level results.

They cannot be academically selective. If faith-based schools are oversubscribed, they can allocate up to 50% of places on the basis of faith with the remainder open to all applicants.

The C of E says its schools are open to children of all faiths and no faith, although church attendance is often a criteria for admission in oversubscribed schools.


How is this not discrimination?

Well, if this goes through I guess there is room for Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster parents because there is indeed important secular principle to be made. I cant comment further because I am ignorant and over here its unthinkable so nothing to draw upon.

I'm glad the US doesn't do such stupid shit.

They'd still have to obey the national curriculum circa RE lessons though wouldn't they? Not allowed to screen out other belief systems/atheism totally...

No. If they're free schools, they set their own curriculum

Given the variable oversight charter schools get, I'm not sure this is an entirely appropriate thing to say. But it was very sweet of you and I appreciated it.
