It’s totally unnecessary in today’s society and will only alienate the cultures more

I think the government interfere far to much in the education system.
The curriculum doesn't value the arts and it is so restrictive.
If a child needs to be taught this I am certain it will be done at home! In the UK our own alphabet and numerals is mandatory as they are used worldwide.

How can you expect immigrants to live side by side in this country if all we do is give into their ways

I have no words to say how angry I am if our British Christian children are to be taught Arabic numerals.

Totally unacceptable, it is not in our children’s interest to participate in these lessons please stick to what is important for this country and if they want to learn foreign educated ideas then they can do so in their own time and their own choice
