Newsline 17 February 2017

As the established church continues to tear itself apart over the issue of homosexuality, it's remarkable to think that this is an organisation responsible for educating around 1 million children in our publicly funded schools and stymying progress on necessary reform of religious education. Even worse is that in many areas, parents have little choice other than to send their child to a church school.

The National Secular Society works tirelessly to oppose faith schools and promote a vision of inclusive secular education. We can only do this with your support. If you haven't already joined us, why not become a member of the NSS today?
