BBC School Season

Just a quick thought. The BBC are doing a School Season of programmes devoted to education and the tough choices parents have to make.

So far, however, I don’t see that the topic of faith schools merits a programme to itself or even a mention in the blurb of any of the programmes on the site for the Season. Hopefully it will get some coverage in the programmes themselves.

Given the news coverage faith schools get – both pro and anti – this looks like an omission. Secular organisations like the British Humanist Association and the National Secular Society often complain about the pro-religion agenda of the BBC and I am beginning to think they have a point.

    A couple of years ago the Jeremy Vine show, BBC Radio 2 lunch time discussion and phone in show, covered the subject of faith schools. The show was bombarded with callers and emails and not one single one of them was in favour of faith schools, not one. It will be interesting to see if any of these coming programmes are open to the public and what opinions are expressed.
