compulsory religious education

European court rules that Turkey's compulsory religion courses violate rights.

If I'm not mistaken, both Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins have observed that in British schools they are required to learn religion and the teachers are required to teach it as true... if that's the case, isn't that a violation of rights?
