Although it is a compulsory subject in all state schools there is no RE national curriculum. So who should determine what is taught?
The answer for Local Authority-run schools are the Standing Advisory Councils on Religious Education (SACREs). The Humanist representative on the Waltham Forest SACRE, Ruth Kaufman, will lead our discussion.
The talk aims to shed some light on what our children are taught, the role of the SACRE in determining this, and how Humanists are seeking to have the non-religious ethical view reflected.
Entry is free. Light refreshments will be available. As usual there will be a social get together at the George pub (opposite Wanstead Tube) after the meeting.
