Comment 11 by pollracker :

I disagree with small children going to church schools and all that, but i don't think they are all horrible for one specific reason; It is because of church schools that I am an atheist. I also have a few atheist friends who received the conversion in the same manner.

And I bet you've met a few people that got more religious as a result of going to church schools. Frankly I think it is a slightly unwise to use personal experience like this and ascribe too much value to it. After all if faith schools made atheists more than religious people then religion would have gone away a long time ago.
