Confused? You should be. Britain's National Union of Teachers (aptly abbreviated as NUT), like many teachers' unions worldwide, wants the State to be the only provider of education. Which translates to society putting all its kids into THEIR hands, of course.
"The National Union of Teachers (NUT) are calling for the abolition of faith schools over fears that segregated schooling in many parts of the country are a breeding ground for racial tensions and terrorism"
They are a bit cautious about attacking Catholic and Church of England schools but seem to think that smaller religious groups might fall prey to them if they push hard enough. One such group is the Seventh Day Adventist Church, a perfectly mainstream church in most respects except that they go to church on Saturday, believing that to be the original Sabbath.
But it so happens that the SDAs in Britain have a significant outreach to blacks so that will likely snooker the NUTs. As a black educator aptly put it in his comments on the NUTs:
"They talk about tolerance but they practice intolerance because they are saying children should only be exposed to one point of view about society and that in itself is intolerant."
