Remove religious appointees from education committees

In Scotland, citizens of all faiths and beliefs can contribute to decisions about education through the democratic processes of seeking election to the Scottish Parliament or local councils. Many civically minded individuals also volunteer on parent councils, attend public meetings, or contribute to consultations and public debates. Given this, it makes no sense for religious organisations to be given an additional institutionally privileged role in education policy.
