ALASTAIR LICHTEN  

“ TOWARDS A SECULAR EDUCATION SYSTEM”

“From compulsory worship to evangelism in schools, and from biased RE to discriminatory admissions, education is the area of public life where a lack of secularism impacts on the lives of most British citizens.  Alastair Lichten will give an overview of the NSS’s campaigns, policy and casework on education, considering some of the biggest and emerging challenges.  The talk will ask ‘When is a faith school not a a faith school’ and how we can work to build a fair and inclusive education system.”

Alastair Lichten is a campaigns officer at the National Secular Society, where his work focuses on education, human rights and public understanding of secularism. He is happy to answer general questions about the NSS/Secularism — and given the date may say something about the election.
