RABBI LEADS CALL FOR RE RE­VIEW

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE GOV­ERN­MENT must or­der an in­quiry into the place of reli­gion in schools, a group of aca­demics and re­li­gious lead­ers has urged in a let­ter to the The sig­na­to­ries, led by Re­form Rabbi Dr Jonathan Ro­main, said that, in the wake of the Tro­jan Horse scan­dal in Birm­ing­ham, faith schools were “fail­ing to pre­pare pupils for a di­verse so­ci­ety”. They de­manded a re­view, ar­gu­ing: “As a so­ci­ety, we must treat reli­gion and be­lief in schools in a way that is fair, in­clu­sive and sus­tain­able.”
