Britain's Free Schools facing scrutiny

Government's flagship policy called into question over failing standards and a narrowly focused curriculum.

    The government has been accused of allowing schools in Britain to be taken over by religious groups at the expense of a wider education.

    Free Schools, which are academies organised by parents, are a flagship policy of the government which says they are being set free from the state.

    But recent incidents, including a damning report on a Muslim school, have led to questions about the policy.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports.
