From faith schools to coercive worship, and from confessional RE to faith based sex education, our school system is full of inappropriate religious influence, privilege and discrimination. But it doesn't need to be this way, our many fantastic community schools show how we can move towards a secular, inclusive education system.

The National Secular Society's head of education, Alastair Lichten, will talk about the Society's No More Faith Schools campaign, along with their other education focussed campaigns.

Alastair Lichten is the Society's head of education, joined the NSS in 2014 to work on a variety of their campaigns, before focusing on education. He currently coordinates the No More Faith Schools campaign.
