Hurray for British Education

A great post to wake up to. The British Humanist Association has made progress in introducing humanism into British schools.

  

This judgment means that schools across the country will have to include non-religious worldviews such as Humanism, and pupils taking the GCSE will have to learn about non-religious worldviews alongside the course.
The judgement also said that ‘the state must accord equal respect to different religious convictions, and to non-religious beliefs’ – which makes today a huge moment for secularism and pluralism and Britain.

Big thanks to the families involved in the case, our lawyers, and to every BHA member and everyone who donated to our fundraiser towards employing our Faith Schools Campaigner (www.justgiving.com/nofaithschools).

Will non religious world views gain more momentum and help children from strict religious families find alternative ways of thinking?
