Posted on by

Increasingly more families in the United Kingdom are realizing that good education is not everything. For children to grow up as responsible adults it needs more than good grades in math, chemistry or foreign languages.

Religion is another problem-child of public schooling in the United Kingdom.Those families where their faith plays a major role in their lives will often see that public schools are insufficient to teach the children according to individual beliefs and morale views.

Private schools in the United Kingdom can address those important issues much better than public schools can. In private and independent schools, children can be taught  according to your values without the often negative influences and distractions that exist in public schools.

Not only can children in private schools learn in accordance with your beliefs. They can likewise be taught important values such as tolerance and acceptance in those independent schools which are not tending to a particular faith but instead make it a priority that children of different faiths and social backgrounds can grow up together in the best way possible.

Good grades are not enough if you want your child to grow up mature and responsible. With private schools Hertfordshire you will not only give your children the best education they can get today, you will likewise make sure that many other values that are so important for a child that grows up are not neglected.

Social Media Intensifies Global Wave Of Religious Persecution

Posted on by

According to an article at The Telegraph, we today experience an upsurge in religious persecution which threatens to drag humanity “back to the dark ages”.
Social media sites such as Twitter and facebook are to blame for this according to former Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks.

The rabbi said in an emotional address in the House of Lords that we can see attempts to wipe out Christianity in parts of the Middle East along with violence and murder of followers across much of Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. He likened those development to what he calls an “religious equivalent of ethnic cleansing”.

However, not too long ago we also witnessed  mob attacks on Jews in France and other parts of Europe, Islamist violence against other Muslims and the persecution.

The former Rabbi said that for him the fact that people today are still killing and being killed in the name of religion is not only a moral and political scandal but “the desecration of faith itself”.

What do you think? Are social media responsible for more religion intolerance and violence?
