Religion and school patronage

 

Sir, – Rob Sadlier (Letters, January 27th) opines that the Government should lead “the transition from a religiously controlled primary school system to one befitting a modern, pluralistic republic”.

Hmm, really ? If their leadership on modern school building is anything to go by, I’d be wary of letting them lead my dog for a walk! – Yours, etc,
