I MUST protest at the misleading headline of your story on church schools: "It's good to have faithI" (TES, February 9). The article itself points out that church primary schools are under-represented in the list of most successful schools and suggests reasons other than faith for successful Church schools supportive family backgrounds and selection of pupils.
A more appropriate headline would have been "It's good to have selectionI" or perhaps, "It's good to have middle-class parentsI" Marilyn Mason
