Children are to be asked 'What is truth?' and to tell us what Utopia would be like. Recommended reading for beginners might include Bertrand Russell, Wittgenstein and Aldous Huxley. The Conservative cabinet will no doubt supply model answers.
If the planners' purpose is to bewilder the children and destroy all faith in anything, this is an excellent scheme. Let it also be noted that where children spot a disagreement, the teacher will be expected to announce which belief is right, and that all the others are therefore wrong. If this 'religious education' becomes established in our schools, parents should at once exercise their freedom of choice by withdrawing their children from all such lessons.
