The rule is to protect the school, not the students

Reader comment on item: Subsidizing the Enemy

Submitted by Sol Shinder (United States), Apr 28, 2006 at 14:42

I find your description of the curriculum of the London Islamic school very troubling. I would agree that, at the very least, such a school should not be able to take advantage of tax laws which amount to a public subsidy for an immoral program.

However, the booklet of the Charity Commission which you cite and which is cited by the Commission representative clearly is written for the benefit and protection of the "Charity," and not for complainants against it. The school does not sound very charitable, but apparently it has that legal status.

I would hope that there is a legal venue available to determine that such "education" is not acceptable.
