Summary: 

A school in Birmingham is expected to become the first in Britain to have its entire governing body sacked under new government powers after an 18-month row over religion threatened to tear it apart. A damning report for the city's education authority into Washwood Heath Technology College found that a group of Muslim governors with a "hidden agenda" was trying to turn it into a Muslim-only school.
