I am in Good Company…
..if you define a government minister as “good company”. According to the Telegraph David Milliband, an atheist, is sending his son to a faith school.
Unusually, for the Telegraph they give space to the anit-faith schools position:
Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society, which seeks the abolition of faith schools, said: “Mr Miliband joins the thousands of parents forced into hypocrisy by the education policies of his own government.
“It is a vicious circle because, as faith schools get a reputation for better results, the most assertive – and, I suppose middle-class – parents choose them and that pushes the results up even further.”
