Absolutely right

Here in the UK we've walked blindly into giving religious groups control over many schools and it's only now that we are seeing the results. Some of our children are being taught not to have contact with people of other faiths and especially those of no faith. We're heading for disaster.

The irritating (okay. it's not irritating, it's infuriating) aspect to me is that they are using public money to do it.  If you want to mis-educate your children, do it with your own fucking money.  Oh, yeah, and deal with the consequence of raising ignorant mushrooms yourself, please.

We have some constitutional protections against that in the US, but they sure do try to chip away at that.
