Muslims Send Their Children To Christian Schools To Prepare For ‘Life In Modern Britain’
The Church of England’s chief education officer has said that Muslim parents are sending their children to Christian schools because the institutions ‘take faith seriously’ and help prepare pupils for ‘life in modern Britain’.
Nigel Genders wrote in a blog post on the CofE’s website: ‘We constantly hear from Muslim parents who tell us that they choose our schools precisely because we take faith seriously and offer an approach to education that gives attention to spiritual as well as academic development.
‘They welcome the opportunity to send their children to a school which will ensure mutual understanding of faiths whilst being clear about the Christian heritage and underpinning narrative on which its ethos and values are based. Like the millions of others who have attended such a school, they know that we prepare children for life in modern Britain and a world that is increasingly connected.’
