Faith School Menace
Richard Dawkins takes on faith based schools in Britain. Around one in every three publicly funded schools in the UK have a religious affiliation. Richard Dawkins says that ‘enough is enough.’
In this passionately argued film, Dawkins calls on us to reconsider the consequences of faith education, which, he argues, bamboozles parents and indoctrinates and divides children.
It also features insights from child psychologists and key players in faith education as well as insights from both parents and pupils.
Dawkins also draws on his own personal history as a father, arguing that the government must stop funding new faith schools, and urges society to respect a child’s right to freedom of belief.
