Faith schools broaden RE teaching

BBC NEWS | Education | Faith schools broaden RE teaching: "Leaders from the Church of England, Hindu, Sikh, Catholic, Muslim, Jewish and Buddhist faiths have signed a joint statement to promote the scheme.

"Our concern is that this agreement is not really worth the paper it is written on, as the signatories to the statement are not those actually running the faith schools."

Signatories to the statement
Cardinal Cormac Murphy O' Connor - Catholic Church
Rt Revd Kenneth Stevenson, Bishop of Portsmouth - Church of England
Jon Benjamin - Board of Deputies of British Jews
Munisha - Buddhist Society
Sarah Lane - Free Churches Association
Anil Bhanot - Hindu Council of UK
Kathleen Wood - Methodist Church
Sir Iqbal Sacranie - Muslim Council of Britain
Indarjit Singh - Network of Sikh Organisations
