Education plays a key role in shaping the future of our country by preparing children for the roles they will play in it. It’s no surprise that politicians place so much importance on getting our education system right. The political parties wrestle over who will do the most to improve standards in schools and universities. The amount spent on education has leapt over the past decade, and it is seemingly matched by a rise in standards according to the government’s league tables.
Christians are actively involved in the education system, seeking to have a positive influence on many young lives. Key issues for Christians also include the content and delivery of religious education and sex and relationships education classes.
