(Photograph) - Salvation Army-run schools may soon be seen in England. The organisation is keen to take advantage of new legislation which will open the door to faith groups taking over and setting up state-funded schools. Its officers could work with lay teachers in the schools, which would be open to non-Christian children. Opponents see this as the first step to other, less-tolerant groups managing their own schools. Page 3. Photograph by PAULINE NEILD
