Muslim Government minister defends free schools policy amid Al-Madinah crisis
by Chris Mallett
A leading politician has launched a robust defence of faith and free schools in the wake of the controversy surrounding Derby's Al-Madinah Muslim school.
Minister for Faith and Communities Baroness Warsi would not be drawn on whether she would have sent her children to the school had she lived in Derby.
Asked if the Al-Madinah situation disappointed her she said: "You will always have occasions, whether they are in the private sector, whether in the state sector, or whether they are a free school, where some schools will not be up to the standard we would like them to be."
