Religion in Schools: The Debate Rolls On

Posted on January 29, 2014 at 2:57 AM
There are currently two secular initiatives being presented to the Scottish Parliament around the role of religion in education.  One is to do with the representation by religious on education committees within local authorities, the other is to do with whether parents should be entitled to opt their children 'in' to religious observance at their school as opposed to the existing system of opt 'out'. 
 
As more of these initiatives start to surface there is a growing disquiet among people of an undercurrent that is continually trying to chip away at the existence of faith schools in our country.  Catholic schools are particularly at risk in Scotland, a country where, in certain quarters, lack of tolerence towards Catholic education has been prevalent for many years.
 
The following text from Michael McGrath, (Director of the Scottish Catholic Education Service) which appeared in the Scottish Catholic Observer in November 2013 is an important reminder of the value of religion within our schools. 
 
Please spare a couple of minutes to read Mr McGrath's text and let us support and promote our schools.  We are the only country in the world where faith schools are derided rather than praised for the great work they do and the significant contribution they make to society.
