We argue that schools are for teaching, not preaching.
So this week we're calling for the end of the law requiring collective worship in schools. We have details of two Jewish schools which have pressurised parents to
opt their children out of relationships and sex education. And a report exposes the fact that religiously segregated schooling in Northern Ireland is costing
taxpayers money – and harming children's opportunities and social cohesion in the process.
Meanwhile, with the general election less than a week away, we have details of the stances taken on secularist issues by the major parties of Scotland, Wales and
Northern Ireland. And we once again urge our readers to read and share the 11 secularist campaigning pledges which we're calling on parties to adopt.
Please consider supporting our work so we can keep it going. If you're not a member already, you can join the NSS today. Thank you.
