18:00 Category: LSS - Secular Hall - Public event[18:30] LSS: Alastair Lichten - No more faith schools: towards secular education
Description:
For the opening event in our Autumn 2019 season we have: Alastair Lichten, Head of Education at the National Secular Society (NSS). His subject is "No more faith schools: towards a secular education system". Faith schools are the biggest example of religious privilege in our education system. From faith schools to coercive worship, and from confessional RE to faith based sex education, our school system is full of inappropriate religious influence, privilege and discrimination. But it doesn’t need to be this way, our many fantastic community schools show how we can move towards a secular, inclusive education system. The National Secular Society’s head of education, Alastair Lichten, will talk about the range of the Society’s campaigning, policy and advice work on education, including their No More Faith Schools campaign. All welcome - admission free. Leicester Secular Society is affiliated to but not part of NSS. Secular Hall is open from 6pm-9pm on most Sunday evenings. We collect food and toiletry items for asylum seekers – please try to donate if you are able.
