Muslim schools – ‘a ticking time-bomb waiting to explode’

Speaking at a seminar on the subject of segregation, Nick Johnson of the Commission for Racial Equality asked: “If a Muslim child is educated in a school where the vast majority of other children are also Muslim, how can we expect him to work, live and interact with people from other cultures when he leaves school? This is a ticking time-bomb waiting to explode.”
