One in four schools breaking the law by not teaching RE, says survey
The report also found pupils are being taught by staff who aren't experts.
It's claimed one in four schools is breaking the law by not teaching religious education to its GCSE students, even if they don't sit an exam in it.
A survey has also found many secondaries are cutting back on specialist RE teachers, leaving pupils to be taught by staff who aren't experts in it.
