I’m impressed. The principal at Edgewater Primary School, Julie Tombs, ended the tradition of reciting the Lord’s Prayer at assemblies after receiving some complaints, and she did it for good principled reasons.
…at this school we have students from a range of backgrounds and it is important to consider all views and not promote one set of religious beliefs and practices over another.
Exactly right! This is a simple decision that schools should not be in the business of promoting sectarian religion. But of course, even in Australia the facts can’t be allowed to stand, so opposition must be gathered in the guise of a democratic poll. And so far, the Australians are disappointing me.
In state schools only 10.96%
I don’t care 7.34%
People who read Pharyngula might have a different perspective on this issue. Maybe you should make your views known.
