This presentation focuses on the recent educational policy debates surrounding Muslims, schooling and the question of security in light of the Counter Terrorism Security Act. It aims to examine the infamous ‘Trojan Horse’ affair in Birmingham and the wider debates surrounding Muslims in schools. Furthermore, it aims to critically evaluate the security discourses of Muslims in state schools in light of theoretical insights from the study of racial politics.
