A hard lesson to learn

Published 18/04/2008

Teddy Bhoy's hopes (Write Back, April 14) that a "Glasgow United" football team "would see the elimination of sectarianism at a stroke" may be a tad on the optimistic side.

In recent years plans for a Catholic and State school to share one campus in the east of Scotland ran into difficulties.

Catholic educationalists insisted on separate entrances, separate staff rooms for teachers and even separate toilets for the children. Only when this type of apartheid education system is tackled and children are educated together will we see a change in attitudes in Scotland and elsewhere.

Please allow me to remain, Libertie, Egalitie, Fraternitie.
