I've updated this CLHG event:http://www.meetup.com/Central-London-Humanists/calendar/13172737/ This event was previously advertised as a talk from Alex Kennedy. Alex has recently left Accord, so the new coordinator, Paul Pettinger, will be speaking at the event instead. Paul was previously Faith Schools Campaigner for the British Humanist Association so will make for a very apt substitution. Paul Pettinger, Accord Coalition Co-ordinator, on Faith Schools
Wednesday 16th June, 6:30pm
Hughes Parry Hall (Chancellor's Room)
Garden Halls, 19 ? 26 Cartwright Gardens WC1H 9EF
The CLHG is delighted that Paul Pettinger
, Co-ordinator of the Accord Coalition, will talk to the group about faith schools in the UK's state education system.
The event will start at 6.30pm. Paul will speak for about 30-40 minutes and audience Q&A will follow, with the event ending at 8pm. Discussion will inevitably follow in The Lord John Russell
, a pub down the road from the venue.
Hope to see you for what promises to be a very interesting talk.
The Accord Coalition was launched in early September 2008 to bring together religious and non religious organisations campaigning for an end to religious discrimination in school staffing and admissions. The coalition also campaigns for a fair and balanced RE curriculum and the removal of the requirement for compulsory collective worship, although it takes no position for or against faith schools in principle. The Association of Teachers and Lecturers, the British Humanist Association and Ekklesia are members of the Accord Coalition.
