The place of RE in the curriculum

The place of RE in the curriculum

'There is plenty to agree with in last week's cover story and editorial. In particular, the idea that the great philosophers should be taught in schools alongside the teachings of Jesus Christ and other religious prophets. Truly objective education about religion is important, but there is no reason why it should be prioritised to the detriment of other ethical perspectives. It's time we moved away from the outdated concept of "religious education", which ring-fences religious ideas for special treatment in schools, and moved towards a new and inclusive subject that covers a variety of religious, non-religious and secular philosophies and world views'. Terry Sanderson President, National Secular Society Letter to The TES
