The Birmingham ‘Trojan Horse Affair’ raises a number of questions, where do we stand on cultural or religious practices that treat women, disabled, or homosexual people unequally? Where do we stand on the rights of children to define what happens to them in school? And what constitutes the inappropriate promotion of religion in schools? But the question we get asked most often is what the brap actually happened? This short summary won’t discuss the ins and outs of the role of religion in public life, or go into great detail about the equality issues arising from the Trojan Horse Affair – we’ve discussed those issues elsewhere – what it will do is give you a brief overview of what happened so you can join in the conversation.
