The campaign against religious schools in the UK

Over the past few years Ofsted – the official Government Inspectorate of Schools – has put extreme pressure on religious schools to conform to a secular model of education. Under the banner that all schools must teach “Fundamental British Values” a secularist agenda has been forced upon every single school in the country. Inspectors regularly visit religious schools and interview the children to make sure they are being inculcated with the worldview the state desires. It seems that a traditional religious education is no longer acceptable in modern liberal Britain.

A recent inspection of a school with a strong Christian ethos was condemned for not teaching the children moral and ethical values. But the truth is that, for Ofsted, religious morals based on the Bible are not acceptable morals in the Brave New World of “Modern Britain”.

The National Secular Society and Humanists UK have both launched campaigns to eradicate faith schools altogether and Ofsted’s agends seems to be influenced by this ideology. Some leaders of Orthodox Jewish schools are in despair and are openly saying that we should prepare ourselves to leave the country.
