Religious studies teaching is pathetic – either improve it, or ditch it For years my daughter called it “colouring in”. And I assumed it was some sort of free lesson in the timetable. Much later I discovered this was the period that her school knew as religious studies – a subject, I am proud to say, that my children have all been spectacularly bad at.
