NotesNews: 20 June: "Community leaders warned last night that some Muslims could be effectively barred from becoming trustees or governors of new academies and free schools under rules introduced by the education secretary, Michael Gove, in response to the "Trojan horse" controversy. The Department for Education has inserted new clauses into the model funding agreement for academies stipulating that its governors should demonstrate "fundamental British values", and giving the secretary of state powers to close schools if they do not comply. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said that the new rule would make it very difficult to become a school governor if conservative Muslim beliefs were deemed to be incompatible with "British values", and that it put too much power in the secretary of state's hands to define those values. The document gives for the first time the education department's written definition of the "British values" that Gove said all schools should be promoting in the wake of the row over allegations of Muslim extremism in Birmingham schools. It says that schools must promote British values of respect for the law, democracy, equality and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs. ... " Richard Adams, The Guardian
