Social Selection and Religiously Selective Faith Schools
Pettinger, Paul
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v56 n3 p473-484 2014
This article reviews recent research looking at the socio-economic profile of pupils at faith schools and the contribution religiously selective admission arrangements make. It finds that selection by faith leads to greater social segregation and is open to manipulation. It urges that such selection should end, making the state-funded school system more inclusive and reducing disadvantage.
