Where will the faithless learn?
Already in many places there is no choice but the local church school, leading to the unedifying spectacle of parents with no faith taking up church-going simply in orderto get their child into their local school, a school which they pay for through their taxes. Those unwilling to participate in this charade often find that their children have to travel long distances to the nearest community school. Any expansion of religious schools would therefore have to be matched by an expansion of community schools.
