Letters Extra: Let in "evangelizing" humanists

Dr Cooling concludes his letter (TES, June 28) by saying: "let's make an effective partnership with visitors from faith communities so that pupils get the chance to see the inspiration that a life of faith can offer."

I wonder if he is also as willing to include partnerships with visitors from humanist and atheist groups - non-faith communities - who wish to demonstrate that morality is a human construct and there is as much if not more inspiration to be had in a life without faith?

The briefest glance at world history and its present woes is all the proof you need that the religious have no exclusive claim to morality as their prerogative. Will Dr Cooling open classroom doors to "evangelizing" humanists?
