Teachers increasingly oppose faith schools and the discrimination they cause

Research shows a majority of teachers supporting an end to new faith schools and a huge majority favouring an end to religious selection, Alastair Lichten finds.

In a recent blog on the debate over compulsory worship in schools, I referenced two write ups from TeacherTapp; a daily survey of circa 4,000 teachers in English schools. I thought it would be a good idea to dive back into these findings and examine what they tell us about support for the campaign against faith schools, at least among teachers.59% of all teachers support an end to new faith schools and 51% support ending state funding for faith schools.

The ‘NSS articles’ category contains links to my opinion pieces, written while a campaigns officer or head of education for the National Secular Society, before June 2022. You can read the full original of this article here >>>
