Inclusive Public Schools
- Parents & Educators
The Albertan Constitution currently includes a provision from the 1905 School Act that allows for the recitation of the Lord's Prayer every morning in Public schools. It offers no such privilege to any other faith.
A Canadian court has already ruled enacting this policy as discriminatory, coercive & exclusive. It stigmatizes children & denies them their religious freedom.
This practice still continues in a number of our diverse Public schools resulting in the segregation of children & families.
We, the undersigned, call on the Alberta Government to deliver on its promise to establish inclusive, safe & welcoming Public schools by removing any legislative favoring of one religious faith over all others & to have our children & their Public schools governed according to The Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms.
The Inclusive Public Schools petition to Parents & Educators was written by Luke Fevin and is in the category Children's Rights at GoPetition.
