Watch for Sir Cyril Taylor to be called an “Islamophobe” and worse. “Replace Muslim schools says top Blair aide,” by Rob Waugh in the Yorkshire Post, with thanks to Twostellas:
SCHOOLS which are dominated by children from Muslim families should be closed and replaced with “multi-faith” academies, a senior Government adviser has said.
Sir Cyril Taylor, chairman of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, said police faced problems in areas where different communities were concentrated in separate schools.
He suggested that such “segregated” schools should be replaced with privately sponsored academies.
Bradford and Leeds were among the areas where such changes could be implemented, Sir Cyril said.
But his comments were severely criticised by one senior Bradford councillor who described them as “staggering” and unfairly singling out Muslims.
That someone would say that after the Dispatches documentary, to say nothing of 7/7, is…staggering.
