UK blocks Islamic free school

U.K. blocks flagship Islamic free school over links to terrorism

15 July 2013


The U.K. education secretary pulled the plug on the Muslim-inspired Northern Lights primary school in Halifax, Yorkshire, a flagship free school, following a three-month investigation. The government ordered the inquiry after complaints that a local Islamic center had circulated a leaflet suggesting that Muslim parents who failed to support the free school would be condemned. Free schools are state-funded but operate independently of town halls and Northern Lights, which was to be run with a Muslim ethos, was due to open in September.
