Council Pays Out Over School Religion Row

Full story from the Herald Scotland.

An atheist living on a Scottish island has been awarded £1000 compensation from his local council after a protracted wrangle over religious education at his eight-year-old son’s primary school.

Apparently he was concerend over religious elements in lessons, so he decided to withdraw his son from the RE lessons and the school tried to dissude him from doing so stating that his son would have to be withdrawn from other school activities.

He won an out of court settlement and has donated it straight back to the school. How about that for principles!
