← UPDATED: Why I want all our children to read the King James Bible

I wish Mr Gove woukd worry about more serious matters, like why religous education in this country is seen as the most fitting place to discuss morals.

When my daughter sits her exams this summer, I don't see the how her ability to answer a question on alcoholism in society has anything whatsoever to do with religion - yet it is a question that was on her mock exam from a past paper.

If we teach children that religion and morals go hand in hand in our schools, many will never realise that they don't. This is mis-education and needs to be addressed!
