UK: New proposals could outlaw Islamic schools where children only study religion all day

This is Birmingham England.

Islamic schools where children only study religion all day and graduate with no skills or qualifications will be outlawed under new proposals.

The Government wants to make it illegal to run full-time schools which focus solely on religious studies and leave pupils vulnerable to brainwashing by extremists.

The schools would be required to register with the Government and to broaden the curriculum to comply with Ofsted standards.

The law would apply to people of all faiths – including Muslims, Jews and Christians – and would allow the authorities to prosecute anyone running a full-time religious studies school.
