The new freedoms and greater clarity over exclusions given to head teachers is having a positive impact on behaviour. I am hugely encouraged by what schools have achieved - but parents know we cannot be complacent until all children are being taught in safe, calm and studious classrooms.
Both the Anglican and Catholic Churches have long been able to use publicly funded schools to inculcate children into their religious traditions. Their reluctance to let go of that privilege is understandable. But for the sake of young people's future, people of all faiths should accept that faith-based education isn't in Britain's best interest.
