    Default I am so angry... (Religion in schools)

    A similar thing happened to me sassy and i was so angry. I specifically denied permission for re but my daughter came home one day saying the teacher had said evolution is wrong etc. appalling.

    I am very clear about it now, that I will make complaints / take legal action etc if necessary.

    Previously I was not too fussed but to hear the absolute tripe this volunteer was 'teaching' shocked me to the core. I even made a speech at a p & c meeting (only one I've ever gone to lol).

    It's very important to me now that my children aren't included in any religious education at all (unless it's anthropological slanted)

    I

    Sassy- how did you go? Did you follow up with the classroom teacher and make sure C won't be included in any more RE classes? Hope the school has sorted it out for you.

    Yes - I said earlier at least once that I don't believe religion should play a part in the school system at all, nada.

    What don't you get? I'll try to clarify (maybe in a PM as I'm feeling a bit repetitive in the thread and I'm going a bit off-topic).

    But those parents pay tax too.

It abuses the lack of good quality schools we have avaible for their own cause.
    Will it be a big deal to make it elective? Or are they scared majority of kids won't get involved? How many of these parents even take their kids to church or involve them in religion at home? Besides celebratinig easter/christmas and that's it? How many people baptise their babies just because it's tradition or even just to get their kids into a good school with no interest in the religious side?
    Making children go to confession? I mean are you joking? What do kids need to confess about? Why would anyone want their child to participate in such a thing? I think the catholics need to worry about the sins of their priests and the corruption in the vatican and not be so concerned about getting children to confess and feel they need religion to cleanse their "sins"
    Sorry, not ranting at you Elijahs mum

    No it wouldn't.
    I still don't believe in re for children, and highschool kids should have it as an elective at least after grade 10. What will happen if it's elective so the kids whose parents want them to learn and believe in it can make their kids attend? Why is that so bad? Does it still not achieve the same thing?
    Sending your child to a religious speaks loud and clear that you are willing them to learn RE.

    Look, even though this comment wasn't directed at me, it's very unnecessary and not sure why you made it apart from wanting to trigger or just be bi.tchy. It does not 'speak volumes' at all, as others have clearly and repeatedly explained. Move on

    Default I am so angry... (Religion in schools)

    Well then buttermilk we have to agree to disagree. I would be very unhappy if a catholic school did not have RE as part of it's curriculum.

    I would then have to homeschool. Thankfully I do have my teaching qualifications.

    I actually think they don't teach enough about it in schools- private schools that is.

    Wtf
    So because you don't agree with me I'm being *****y? Am I not entitled to an opinion that is different to others? Buttermilk, at the bottom of her post, asked a question and I answered it. I don't at all see how that is trying to trigger or be *****y. Maybe you could be a little more clear as to how you drew this conclusion?

    I didn't find the comment to be anything like you've described
    It was a statement that actually makes a lot of sense. If you send your child to a religious based school, it's pretty clear that your happy for your child to have RE as part of the curriculum.

    But it's not necessarily.... Sorry but have you read all the posts by others and myself? I feel like you haven't read them? I was responding to the fact that the previous poster said one thing and then was told by another poster that 'clearly' she thinks the opposite! I don't care if people have different opinions but telling others what the actually think is wrong, is inflammatory.

    I am not really wanting to continue as I don't really have anything to add on the subject. Sorry OP!!
