Islamization continues to surge forward
Toddlers at risk of extremism, warns Education Secretary
Nicky Morgan will use her first major speech to highlight the danger of extremism in Britain’s nurseries after ‘Trojan Horse’ scandal
Nurseries are at risk of being taken over by religious extremists, the Education Secretary will warn as she announces that toddlers are to be taught “fundamental British values”.
In her first major policy announcement, Nicky Morgan will say that local authorities will be obliged to use new powers to strip nurseries of their funding if they are found to “promote extremist views”.
She will also say that toddlers should be taught “fundamental British values in an age-appropriate way” as part of a drive to protect children from religious radicals.
Nurseries that teach creationism as scientific fact will be ineligible for taxpayer funding, under the new rules.
Mrs Morgan’s announcement comes in the wake of the “Trojan Horse” plot by Islamist radicals to take over state schools in Birmingham.
