Summary: 

Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw has warned that local councils and police are continuing to ignore illegal faith schools, undermining efforts to prosecute the operators and protect children's rights. In an interview with The Times, the outgoing Chief Inspector said that "political correctness" was causing local authority to turn a blind eye to illegal faith schools, particularly in the case of unregistered Islamic schools.
