For your Sunday morning viewing, I give you “Faith School Menace,” a 45-minute documentary narrated by and featuring Richard Dawkins that just aired on Channel 4 in the UK. It’s about the egregious British institution of government-supported faith-based schools, which now comprise 1/3 of “public” (in the U.S. sense) primary schools. It’s really good investigatory journalism, well worth watching—especially for those who argue that Dawkins’s shrillness and stridency render him ineffectual. (More on that later today.)
There are four parts; here’s the first, with the links to the rest below. (If you watch the first video, you’ll be automatically taken, in succession, to the others.) If you’re in the UK, you can find a link in comment #1 below.
