British Humanist Association complaint to the European Commission about faith schools

The European Commission has written to the British Humanist Association to say it will investigate whether UK legislation around state funded ‘faith’ schools breaches European employment laws in relation to discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief.

Their investigation comes in response to a complaint made by the BHA to the Commission in April 2010, in which the BHA argued that UK law allows much wider discrimination in who ‘faith’ schools can and cannot employ than the relevant European Directive.
