There was an article in yesterday’s Telegraph reporting that religious education teachers have been told in new guidance that primary school pupils should be taught about ‘white privilege’.

One of the people who questioned whether the guide was appropriate is the former Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali.

The situation in the educational institutions is that white working-class boys are at the bottom of the pile. So what does it mean to teach them that they are privileged?
