British Humanist Association report on ‘organisation of “faith” schools in the maintained sector’

In April 2012, the British Humanist Association published a ‘Freedom of Information report on organisation of “faith” schools in the maintained sector’.

The report finds that almost two-thirds of the state-maintained ‘faith’ schools to open in the last five years have done so outside of competition, whilst for schools without a religious character, the number is less than one in six. The British Humanist Association says that the findings reveal a biased system, in which religious organisations are uniquely privileged and local democracy is subverted.
