Why do I suspect that this is not the whole story. If you click through, you will get a hint that they do not enforce these rules against their muslim students but most likely enforce these rules against non-Muslims in order to accommodate the bullying of Islamic parents. And after several personal interviews with teachers who for obvious reasons need to remain anonymous, I can assure you all that Islamic parents bully the hell out of teachers in public schools.
In any case, the issue below smacks of the worst kind of thought control and selective enforcement, the second being considerably worse than the first as infractions in my world goes.
A HEADTEACHER has defended his actions after a religious row erupted at a Devon school where a five-year- old girl told a classmate she would “go to hell” if she did not believe in God.
The youngster, a pupil at Landscore Primary School, Threshers, in Crediton, complained to her mother after she was told off for the comment.
Primary school receptionist Jennie Cain, from Crediton, is facing a governors’ investigation
Her mum, Jennie Cain, who works as a receptionist at the school, is under investigation for professional misconduct after she sent a private email to friends about the matter.
Mrs Cain, of Queen Elizabeth Drive, Crediton, initially complained to Jasmine’s teacher.
Her daughter had come home in tears and said she had been told off for “talking about Jesus”.
The 38-year-old mother was then called into headteacher Gary Read’s office about the matter.
The email, written after this meeting, which asked friends to pray for her and her daughter, fell into the hands of Mr Read.
It allegedly contained claims against the school and its staff.
Mr Read defended the school’s treatment of the matter and said they encouraged all children to “think independently”, but would not condone one child “frightening” another.
He said: “We have 271 children in our school from a diversity of backgrounds.
“We encourage all our children to think independently and discuss their beliefs with their teachers and classmates when it is appropriate to do so.
“What we do not condone is one child frightening a six-year-old with the prospect of ‘going to hell’ if she does not believe in God.
