SU Scotland staff Kathryn Campbell and Phil Wray were on the airwaves of Radio Scotland on Friday as part of the Call Kaye phone-in show, where the question being asked was: “Should religion be banned from assemblies in Scotland's non-denominational schools?”

You can listen back to it on the BBC website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01qkrxm.  

The debate on religious observance starts at 58:35 and you can catch the calls from Kathryn at 1:21:00 and Phil at 1:25:50.

This comes off the back of a news story in the Edinburgh area about a parent in Edinburgh who has launched a petition calling on the City Council to look at banning religious observance in non-denominational schools. More details can be found in this BBC News article from Friday 22 Feb.
