“Schools to teach the Qur’an”

Apparently the National Union of Teachers has called for the end of separate faith schools and instead for “faith-based instruction, prayer facilities and a choice of religious holidays” to be introduced into all schools.

Don’t have much time to discuss this story, but you can be certain the right-wing press had a field day; even the BBC got in on the act.

    it’s a good book. They should also teach the Tao te Ching, and Zen koans.

    diversity of thought for everyone.
