The funny thing is, that on principle I oppose the concept of faith schools, which would bring me onside with the odious Johnson and her gang. However,my personal view is that, because ones Faith is personal, it should not be the foundation for a state school.
Speaking from a Baha'i perspective, we run many children's classes and junior youth groups. However, although these are based on the teachings of Baha'u'llah, they do not seek to indoctrinate (proselytising is in any case forbidden for Baha'is) and are open to youngsters of any faith or none. Indeed I know of a junior youth group which is largely facilitated by non-Baha'i youth! This is rather different from the current situation in state religious schools, I think.
