Around the world, there are hundreds of thousands of faith based schools. They are administered through a vast array of local, national, regional and international networks. It might be an Anglican Diocese in Sub-Saharan Africa with responsibility for as many as a hundred schools; it might be a network of mosques who run hundreds of pasentrans – Islamic boarding schools in rural Indonesia; it might be a Catholic Religious Order running schools in South America or the Sikhs in the Punjab and their school network. Each faith has its central body with responsibility for the overall planning and development of the educational work of the faiths. The role of the faiths is the best kept secret in the world, but the secret is out. It is through the emerging partnership between secular bodies and faith groups that gives hope for the future for millions of children around the world. [authors abstract]
