Religious schools

It seems bizarre in today’s world that schools are still ‘affiliated’ with religion: All Saints C. of E. school, for example, the one that I attended.

Schools are a public service, paid for by the British tax-payer, regardless of their religion. It is as absurd as having religion-specific hospitals, or tips, or policemen. (Places of worship are fine, as they’re privately funded.) Surely we need to get rid of these now-meaningless labels, to promote equality and a more diverse, welcoming society.
