STOP RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN PUBLIC PRIMARY SCHOOLS
Petition Background (Preamble):
We are happy to support a broad-based study of religions, philosophy and moral values, but we believe a narrow religion-specific approach has no place in secular schools.
1/ No longer compel public schools to accept offers made of religious instruction.
2/ Stop funding religious instruction in schools. If religious instruction is to be taught in public schools it should be the decision of the school council of the school, should be able to be supervised by school teachers, should not interfere with the teaching of the normal school curriculum, and should be carried out on an "opt in" basis rather than an "opt out" basis.
