Message from the BHA – help protest against report on faith schools in the press
Many of you will have seen the coverage in today’s press (30 June) of a new pamphlet on ‘faith schools’, published by the Centre for Policy Studies, written by Christina Odone, which seeks to portray the UK’s state-funded faith schools as inclusive and under attack from hostile secularists.
The BHA’s Andrew Copson responded to the pamphlet today on The Guardian’s ‘Comment is Free’ website. You can read the blog and post a comment at http://tinyurl.com/4nze3u
We are also asking our members and supporters to post messages on the websites of these newspapers that have covered the story:

We are also asking members and supporters to write to their own MPs, expressing their opposition to faith schools.
