There is no such thing as a neutral education. All teaching, like all knowledge, carries with it particular conceptions of the good. An education system should reflect the breadth of its public, rather than a narrow secular ideology.

For these reasons, Theos believes that Christianity should be able to flourish within our education system, not simply in a Religious Education silo, but within the system itself.

Theos’ research looks at faith schools and the education system as a whole and argues that for principled as well as practical reasons, Christianity has a crucial role to play in the future of the education in Britain.
