No faith in Christian teachers

https://www.tes.com/magazine/archive/no-faith-christian-teachers
IF Canon Slade school in Bolton only admits C of E children who have a four-year record of church attendance (TES, May 24), then why, I wonder, does it not apply the same rules to its teachers?

Could it be that church attendance is a very effective academic selection criteria for children but is much less helpful when it comes to selecting the most able staff? And if so, what does this tell us about the kind of Christian values Canon Slade school upholds?
