Fears of another 'Trojan Horse' scandal reignited after Islamic school posts advert for 'male-only' teacher
by Harry Yorke
Fears of another "Trojan Horse" scandal have been reignited in Birmingham after an Islamic private school was found to have placed an advert for a male-only science teacher.
The advert which risks being in breach of the Equalities Act, has since been retracted - but the headmaster claims that the role must be occupied by a male teacher because of "religious observance reasons".
The decision has prompted calls for the Salafi Independent School, located in Small Heath, to be investigated, amid fears its stance promotes "gender-based discrimination" and threatens to undermine "British values".
