BHA reaction to Sir Michael Wilshaw’s call for a crackdown on suspected illegal schools in England

Director of Public Affairs and Policy Pavan Dhaliwal commented: 

'We have worked for many years with former pupils from registered and unregistered schools who are subjected to indoctrination and abuse and called on the Government to take action. On the same day that Sir Michael Wilshaw has called for tough action on illegal schools we have launched a new whistleblowing service for former and current pupils who have experienced indoctrination, misinformation, discrimination, neglect, and abuse in their schools. At long last we hope that the Government will be taking comprehensive and swift action to help those who have been denied their basic right to an education and we will continue to pass on information to them through Faith Schoolers Anonymous in the hope that we can put a stop to this egregious situation.'
