New British PM encouraging growth of Catholic schools
September 13, 2016
British Prime Minister Theresa May has encouraged the establishment of new Catholic schools, signaling a break in a trend toward secularization, writes Austen Ivereigh for the Crux news site.
In a speech last week, the new prime minister laid our plans for educational reform, including a bid to provide government funding for religious institutions-- including not only Anglican and Catholic but also Jewish, Muslim, and Hindu schools. Such schools now account for about one-third of the primary schools in England.
