    30 schools across the UK are using textbooks which teach that AIDS can be avoided through religion, and that homosexuality is a choice

    The US-based Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum currently lists over 30 participant UK schools on its website, with the majority being private Christian schools.

    Pupils on the course do not study for GCSEs or A-Levels, and instead work to attain a International Christian Certificate of Education.

    A textbook used as part of the course teaches that homosexuality is a choice, evolution is a lie, abortion is wrong, and AIDS can be avoided by following the Bible.

    That in it's way seems horrifying. I guess it depends how it is being used. With Creationism, I think it being taught as a scientific theory needs to be stopped. Teaching students that there are people who believe that is the case, is perfectly valid - although unless you have elected a relevant subject, I don't see why it would ever be part of the 'core' curriculum.

    Religious Education is part of the core curriculum.

    He's right. It must be taught until the end of KS4 by law. You don't have to take a GCSE in it, but you must be taught it.

    Sorry, I should have said "I don't see why it should be". There are many things more worthy of classroom time than religion, other than to mention it in passing as you might any other fairy story.
