"Religion-free schools" (July 30) is the type of story that confirms my fears about "free" schools. I have nothing against Professor Richard Dawkins, but before and during the election campaign, the emphasis was on parents setting up free schools. Now that has changed to "groups". I am concerned about schools being set up by those promoting a philosophy - be that atheist, religious, creationist, political or financial. Providing quality education may not be their priority.
Importing an idea from a country with a different education system and social attitudes and trying to make it fit here is a risky ideological experiment that could damage children's education if it fails.
