Fair choice for families on religion and ethics

Fair choice for families on religion and ethics

Immediate action is needed on the NSW public school enrolment form.
NSW Labor says they will change the form if elected.
The Government agrees that parents should be able to choose religious or secular lessons (quote from Rob Stokes in the Sydney Morning Herald, 10 June).
If both parties agree - let's make the change now!

Why is this important?

A change to the enrolment form is the best way to provide families with all options upfront and to respect the right of families to choose what's best for their children.
It's imperative that no more children be swept up in the current system that disadvantages children from non-religious backgrounds or minority religious groups.
