Around a third of publicly funded schools are faith schools and they have a wide range of opportunities to promote, and discriminate according to, their religious ethos. These schools also influence practices across the education system. 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 Alastair Lichten will talk about the Society's No More Faith Schools campaign, along with their other education-focused campaigns. The talk includes advice on activism and it will be engaging and informative for those with any level of pre-existing knowledge on the subject.
Alastair Lichten is the Society's head of education. He 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.
