PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, NOVEMBER 14, 1969 British Teachers Insist Religious Education Must Remain in Public Schools London (NC) -- A national teach- ers' advisory committee --after examining the uncertain future of Christian religious education in state schools -- had declared that such education should still be an important part of the curriculum. A strong pressure group backed by secularists in the press and in Parliament is agitating for the abolition of such education, an end to assembly prayers in the morning and the complete de-Christiani- zation of state schools. Some of them have proposed the substitution of classes in compara- tive religion in which pupils would be taught as general knowledge the story of the Bible and the principal doctrines of the world's major religions. The teachers' advisory commit- tee, however, said that Christian beliefs and morality should still be the core of religious education. It said children should be taught to know and love God and believe in Him. The committee is fairly repre- sentative of the mass of school teachers here, but its findings are only recommendations. But education anthorities in Liv- erpool, big industrial complexin the northwest, decided after studying the report to recom- mend its acceptance in principle. City Councilor David Ritchie said he felt that there is still a strong demand for religious in- struction generally. One of the main problems, he said, is finding teachers with the necessary qual- ifications. The teachers' report said that in primary schools -- for children up to the age of ii -- religious lessons should take place every day, but that in secondary schools for older students there should be two periods a week up to the fourth year. At present, religious education is compulsory in all state schools although it is left to the head teacher generally to decide how much and how often such instruc- tion is given.
