Schools have been banned from using teaching material that calls for the end of capitalism because it is an “extreme political stance”, sparking criticism.

New guidance puts groups wanting to replace the economic system on a par with those endorsing racism, antisemitism and violence, or the overthrow of democracy.

Even material that is “not extreme” has been outlawed if it has been produced by organisations on the banned list, because that could “imply endorsement”.
