NUTfest '08- They Take A Stand On Indoctrination.

Letting propagandists into schools, they're against it:

Members of the National Union of Teachers said military visitors to schools pushed a partisan view of becoming a soldier which promotes the career prospects, training and travel, while downplaying the "fatal realities".

In a motion put forward at the union's annual conference in Manchester, they said: "Schools should not be conduits for either the dissemination of MoD propaganda or the recruitment of military personnel."

Except when they are for it:

Muslim clerics and other faith leaders should be sent into state schools to teach children about religion, according to a teachers' union.

Pupils should also be given the time and facilities to pray during the school day, it said.

The system drawn up by the National Union of Teachers would replace traditional religious assemblies - which must be broadly Christian - as part of a radical overhaul of faith-based education in England.

Glad that's cleared up then. Okay no more NUT related posts until NUTfest '09.
