Religious schools “not better” shock!

Hmm, interesting to note that a study by the University of London has found that –

“faith schools” engage in social selection through their admissions procedures and that such schools do not improve educational standards.

Paul Pettinger, BHA Faith Schools and Education Officer, said, ‘The findings of this report add to an ever-growing body of evidence which shows that if “faith schools” achieve better exam results, it is because of their socially selective admissions policies and not because they provide a better standard of education than inclusive community schools.’

So religious schools aren’t any better than non-faith schools, but they seem to be because they don’t let in any of those dreadful working class oiks.

Religion – making rich people feel better for over 2,000 years!
