Yorkshire Post on creationist (and faith) schools

Postby Brian Jordan » Mon May 21, 2012 7:28 pm

Pretty clued up, considering - and on the front page, too. Needs a bit of tweaking though - I'll try and get a (personal) letter into the print edition.
CAMPAIGNERS have warned the Government’s free school programme could add to religious and racial segregation in the region’s cities after plans to create Muslim, Sikh, and Jewish schools, and a failed bid by a Christian group to teach creationism to pupils were put forward.

Concerns have also been raised that another planned free school in Yorkshire is part of an education movement which is based on “pseudoscience” teachings – a claim strongly rejected by those involved.

They also seem blissfully unaware of the self-inspection going on, too!

Two years after idiot Gove brought in free schools and it's taken this long for the press and everyone else to cotton on to the blatantly obvious fact that it was a creationist and other loons charter. It was said here two years ago!!!

And even if they manage to catch every creationist proposal - and Barnsley, Bradford and Destiny have become remarkably coy about their creationist links as has Exemplar - how much is it costing the taxpayer to examine each lunatic claim in sufficient detail?. Civil servants still had to assess Sheffield creationist free school and compose a letter. And real schools are losing teachers cos they're broke. And subject choice is disappearing! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
