Great ethos, shame about inclusion
I find it quite shocking that any reasonable person finds it "far more likely that the reason faith schools perform better" than mainstream schools is the "ethos behind the education they provide" (Erica Sosna, Letters, TES, January 9). If this is the case, surely this ethos should allow any child - irrespective of their religion - admission to faith schools?
Currently, all that most faith schools do is cement divisions in society, in an attempt to serve their own - or at least those who have navigated their way, by hook or by crook, through the admissions process.
