Gender segregation in Muslim schools ‘undermining British values’ – chief inspector

Some independent Islamic schools are “undermining British values” by ignoring calls to end gender separation among their staff, the UK’s education watchdog has warned after an inspection of an Islamic day school in Luton.

Senior Ofsted inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw revealed that the Rabia Girls’ and Boys’ School segregated male and female staff by using a dividing screen across the middle of a classroom during an initial meeting with inspectors.

    Wilshaw must have just come out of a coma. Someone ought to tell him Islamic values are now British values.

    The name of the school looks like “rabies” and I had to look at it again.
