(Daily Mail)— Families with deeply religious values are resorting to home schooling their children more frequently, as schools report an increase in religious bullying.
Disgruntled parents cited incidents in which their children were taunted and targeted for opposing same-sex marriage.
New figures reveal the number of pupils being educated by their parents has soared 50 per cent in just four years to 4,479, The Saturday Telegraph reported.
A shift in school values, showing a more general hostility toward Christian and Islamic ideals and beliefs are allegedly at the root of the problem, according to Accelerate Christian Home Schooling co-ordinator Stuart Chapman.
