Petition on Religious Observance In Schools

A group of concerned people published a petition last week asking for the support to propose an end to religious observance in state-funded non-faith Scottish Schools.

“We, the undersigned, call on the Scottish Government Cabinet Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning to take immediate action to remove religious observance from all state-funded non-denominational schools in Scotland.”

While this petition is not being run directly by the HSS, it is as an issue the Education group has been working on for some time and support in principle.

We encourage HSS members and the public to think about the effect religious observance has on young people in Scottish Schools and sign the petition via the link below.
