I heard a little while back about how there is some teaching of christianity in public schools. It would be no surprise to you as an atheist and an Australian (aren't we supposed to accept all religions and beliefs?) that I find this absolutely abhorrent.
But it leads to an interesting question: how do you know if the school you are sending your child teaches religion?
I'm obviously talking about public schools, I have no issue with private religious schools teaching religion (well actually I do - but that's another topic). I don't want my daughters taught christianity, certainly not without my consent. If it were a worldwide religion and philosophy subject I would have absolutely no problem with that. I just think children are so impressionable and I don't want my daughter to have faith pushed on her in any way.
Anyone have any further information? How can I choose a school where I know that religion will not be taught?
