Speaker information

Join us at UCL for this panel discussion exploring the role of religion in education, which marks 140 years of the University Tests Act.

How can we balance the rights and freedoms of religious groups, their adherents, pupils, staff and parents in the education system? What would proponents of the University Tests Act argue today?

PLEASE NOTE - Professor A.C. Grayling has withdrawn from this event in order to prevent inconvenience to UCL and to allow the discussion to focus on the subject of the meeting rather than being diverted to other concerns. Professor Grayling is making contact with those concerned about higher education to talk with them directly about the matters that would have distracted attention here.

This event is being organised in association with the Accord Coalition.
