Now some people are fed up with public school treatment of Christianity and have launched a campaign calling for a rescue of kids from government education programs – a “Call to Dunkirk.”

School bans the word school!
THE head of a new school has banned the word “school” — in case it upsets pupils’ parents.
Watercliffe Meadow is known as a “Place for Learning” because staff say “school” has a negative impact on some mums and dads.
The new £4.7million academy in Sheffield, South Yorks, replaced three old schools.
Its 481 pupils, from nursery to Year 6, are allowed to wear slippers instead of shoes.
Headteacher Linda Kingdon said: “We decided we didn’t want to use the word ‘school’.
“One reason was many parents of children here had very negative connotations of school.
“Instead we want this to be a place for family learning.
“There are no bells or locked doors. We wanted to de-institutionalise the place and bring the school closer to real life.”
Lets see … Prisons are no longer prisons but holding facilities for wayward people …. You know the slipper idea seems kinda cool though!
