U.K. to teach students ‘British values’ after ‘Trojan horse’ scandal reveals Islamists taking over schools | National Post
English schoolchildren will be taught “British values” in the wake of a report that some schools had been taken over by Islamists.

Michael Gove, the education minister, said that in future all of England’s 20,000 elementary and high schools will have to promote British values of tolerance and fairness.

The announcement came in the wake of the “Trojan horse” scandal which found that some schools in the central city of Birmingham had been taken over by Islamists.

Regulator the Office for Standards in Education said Monday it had found a “culture of fear and intimidation” at a minority of the 21 schools it inspected. Five were found to have failed to protect students from extremism.

The review found that one of the schools had been funding a Madrassa from its own budget; at another school only Muslim children had been taken on trips to Saudi Arabia; a third school regularly broadcast a call to Muslim prayer over the school’s loudspeaker in the playground, while another school taught in biology that “evolution is not what we believe.”

Chief schools inspector Michael Wilshaw said there was evidence of an “organized campaign to target certain schools” by some members of their governing bodies.

Inspectors said members of governing boards had promoted a “narrow faith-based ideology” at some schools, whose students were overwhelmingly from Muslim backgrounds. One school attempted to ban mixed-sex swimming lessons; at another, music lessons were dropped because they were considered un-Islamic, and at a third, board members vetted the script for a nativity play and told staff they could not use a doll to represent the baby Jesus.

“Staff and some head teachers variously described feeling ‘intimidated,’ ‘undermined’ or ‘bullied’ by governors, and sometimes by senior staff, into making changes they did not support,” Mr. Wilshaw said.

Park View Educational Trust, which runs three of the criticized schools, rejected the inspectors’ verdict and said it would launch a legal challenge. Vice chairman David Hughes said the inspectors “came to our schools looking for extremism” but had not found any.

The Muslim Council of Britain said it was concerned that the inspectors were conflating religious belief and extremism.

This is common sense.

Of course, in the old days teaching British values, and teaching the greatness of Great Britain, was all part and parcel of education. Children were taught all about the glories of Great Britain and her Empire and patriotism was drummed into them.

Nowadays, with lefty liberals having taken over the British education system, children are taught in school that being proud of Great Britain and her glorious history is something to be ashamed of. These liberal educationalists have stood back and allowed Muslims to take over our schools and done nothing whilst they force burka-clad girls to sit at the back of the classroom and teach the pupils that all white women are prostitutes. Our left wing educationalists think such teachings are better than the patriotic teachings of days gone by.

Thankfully Mr Gove is no left winger. He's a fine Education Secretary (since the "Celtic" nations were given their own parliaments in 1999 by the Scottish mafia in the Labour Party but England was disgracefully denied one, what was formerly known as the British Education Secretary now just has remit over England) and is doing his best to improve an education system wrecked by years of liberal teachers teaching the "young people" (we can't call them children anymore) self-hating liberal ideologies. That's why members of the NUT union keep taking to the streets. They're appalled that we don't have a Labour Education Secretary anymore and hate the thought that our Conservative Education Secretary is doing his best to improve England's education system (the similarly wrecked education systems of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are devolved matters). They hate the thought that Gove wants teachers to start teaching children maths, science and English, rather than "climate change" and "all white women are prostitutes". The latter are the things the left really want to teach our children today.

But, thankfully, left wing rule is coming to an end in this country. The people are fighting back to make this country great again. And roll on 2015 and the election, after which the Tories will, hopefully, make a deal with Ukip and get to form a Tory-Ukip coalition with them (which is a real possibility). Let's kick the Liberals out of government and bring in Ukip. I can't think of anything better than a Tory-Ukip government other than a Ukip government, but Ukip's best chance of getting into power at the moment would be in a coalition with the Tories.

Let's kick out the CONDEMs and bring in the CONKIPs.
