Producing good citizenship

The letter published on behalf of John Cartledge (‘Policy is cause of this crisis’, Your Views, September 30), is a shameful attempt to demonise sectarian education by linking this right of choice with the incompetence of the politicians of yester year.

During the period Mr Cartiledge was a Labour county councillor he may even have contributed to the failure of politicians at County Hall to accurately forecast and plan for the needs of future generations?

The demand for sectarian faith schools is on the increase by families of all religions.

I believe that most religions by their tenets and doctrines teach the basic fundamentals of good citizenship.

These teachings translate to family values through the process of education coupled to parental guidance and practice, which assist the younger generation to identify and resist the often corrupt, immoral influence of the society around them.
