Wasting taxpayers' money

HEADTEACHERS are being advised to 'spice up' their religious education lessons by getting children to dress up in Muslim clothes, learn about the five pillars of Islam and make prayer beads. Instead of wasting local taxpayers' money transporting children back and forth to Birmingham, North Somerset children should be learning more about their Christian roots first. I see nothing wrong with with introducing a balanced spread of RE in the classroom, spiced up if you wish, but I object to specific and expensive outings to dress up Christian children and let them act out being a Muslim.
