← Countless millions of taxpayers’ money spent on discrimination in schools

One of the highlights of my time at my United Reformed Church secondary school was when the prep school headmaster Mr Hawkins had a sudden road to Damascus conversion to Anglicanism and joined the Church of England. Several months later he started blanking me in the street whenever I bumped into him in Caterham and then announced that he was leaving his post as head of the prep school to go to another job in another school which happened to be Church of England.

Of course it could be that all this was entirely a matter of faith and after studying his faith and history seriously Mr Hawkins had come down in his soul against non-conformism. But really if, as a teacher, you cant lie about your faith ...then probably you're in the wrong career
