Can anyone out there provide me with a single shred of evidence that parents want more church schools?
I don't mean the popularity, or otherwise, of existing church schools, but the idea, and the policy which is being implemented at the moment of more church schools.
To get more church schools you either have to build a new church school or you have to convert an existing community school into a church school. So please, supporters of church schools, and those who think it's giving parents what they want, please supply just one study, one piece of evidence that parents want MORE church schools.
I have already blogged the research that found where parents got together to campaign for a new school in their neighbourhood they almost NEVER want that school to be a church school.
Isn't the truth of the matter that the government, and now David Cameron and the Conservatives, aren't giving parents what they want they are just caving in to the selfish interests of the churches?
