Multiculturalism in the U.K.: Faith Based and Ethnic Schools
New English Review, February 2008
Until very recently, the British government has avoided the continuing controversy over the questionable advisability of establishing additional separate Muslim sectarian schools. In spite of the use of the term "mutliculturalism" by members of Parliament and even ministers, it has meant different things to different people. There are now more than 7,000 faith-based schools in Britain, the great majority run by the Church of England or the Catholic Church, with a handful of Jewish schools and over the past twenty years, more than 100 Muslim schools have been established, primarily in London and in the cities of the Northern Midlands where large numbers of Muslim immigrants settled.
