The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams will talk about religious education in schools when he gives his Easter sermon today. He will say:
There is plenty to suggest that younger people, while still statistically deeply unlikely to be churchgoers, don't have the hostility to faith that one might expect. They at least share some sense that there is something here to take seriously when they have a chance to learn about it. It is about the worst possible moment to downgrade the status and professional excellence of religious education in secondary schools.
