Sixth form C oncern

BISHOP David Konstant of Leeds has warned that religious education may lose out in the debate over the funding of sixth form colleges.

Speaking at a Notre Dame Sixth Form College in Leeds, the bishop who chairs the bishops' conference committee on education said that the tendency was for all education changes to be money-driven, and warned that minority interests might suffer.

"I am concerned at possible effects on religious education in our colleges. With no representation on the funding council it will be necessary to fight our corner to ensure religious education is not marginalised," he said.

The government is proposing to centralise the funding of sixth form colleges in the hands of a body on which the church will have no seat.
