Catholic ethos in schools

 

Sir, – Breda O’Brien (Opinion, October 15th) conjures up the idea of a “Richard Dawkins Academy” type atheist school as the model preferred by non-religious parents. This is a complete distortion. We are simply looking for schools that do not discriminate based on a child’s religious background. Secular (separation of church and state) does not equate to atheist. – Yours, etc,
