Teachers warn extremism policy prevents open debate
by Sean Coughlan
Teachers have warned that the government's anti-extremism strategy is "shutting down" open debate in school.
The National Union of Teachers conference voted for the government's Prevent strategy to be withdrawn from schools and colleges.
Delegates said it created "suspicion and confusion" rather than safety in schools.
The Department for Education says it "makes no apology" for protecting young people from extremism.
