UK: Islamic Radicals Are in Schools, Government Report Says


By Duncan Gardham – “Its new counter-radicalisation strategy, Prevent, warned that some people who are supportive of terrorist groups and ideologies have ‘sought and sometimes gained positions in schools or in groups which work closely with young people.’

It said that new standards to be enforced by Ofsted should enable schools to take action against staff who demonstrate unacceptable views.

The Education Bill will also include a stronger focus on pupils’ ‘spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.’

The Prevent strategy quotes the example of Mohammed Sidique Khan, the leader of the July 7 bombers, who was a learning mentor at Hillside Primary School in Leeds.

Another example, not quoted, is that of Zahoor Iqbal, who was found guilty of helping a man planning to kidnap and execute a British soldier in Birmingham, and worked as an ‘achievement mentor’ at Saltley School in the city.” Read more.
