Apparantly the new British government is planning to give parents, teachers and charities powers to open their own schools and (as far as I can tell) set their own curriculum. Is this not just a way of giving religious groups via charitable status a means of setting up religious schools and teaching creationism/IB and other such dubious beliefs under whatever title they want, mainly science? (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8597572.stm)

Even where those intending to open schools have no such ambitions I have little faith in the ability of parents, charities and even some teachers to give children a comprehensive education without a governing body inplace to ensure that basic minumum standards are met. Personally I'm not suprised that this is being proposed by the Conservative and that the Lib Dems (Who I supported partly because there more secular stance on education) aren't particually happy with this.

This will not address the real problem which is poor parenting resulting in children with behavioural problems and little ambitionswhen it comes to educating and ultimately bettering themselves.

All messages should have some obvious connection to the merit or lack of merit, and methodolgy of inserting creationism into British schools.
