Discrimination of faith quotas

3rd November 2006 at 00:00
The result of Education Secretary Alan Johnson's humiliation by the Catholic church is that new faith schools can now be built bigger than the faith group needs.

So, entirely at public expense, the church - or Islam - takes control of educating yet more than the present one in four of our children, and choice of schools for conscientious, unbelieving parents and career opportunities for similarly conscientious teachers become yet narrower.
