Anti-faith squad express a faith position, too

Although I'm not a teacher, I enjoy reading The TES each Friday, as my wife is a subscriber. However, last week's article about Malton School ("Secondary to return to CofE when it converts to academy") showed a clear anti-church schools bias.

I can hardly remember any positive articles in The TES about the faith basis of a religious school. When church-school items appear, very frequently you get a quote from the British Humanist Association that says something that doesn't amount to much more than: "We don't like their beliefs."

This is as much a faith position as that taken by a church school or one sponsored by a faith community.
