Stop state-funded faith schools discriminating against children based on their parent's faith
This is a petition to call for the government to prevent state-funded faith schools using a child’s religion (or lack of religion) to discriminate against that child when allocating school places. Additionally, it is to call for balanced, realistic and un-biased teaching of all religions in these schools rather than teaching that specific religion as fact. -----
Many state primary schools are affiliated with local churches and, as such, priority is given to children whose parents attend a specific church when assigning places in the school. This is nothing but discrimination and should be outlawed. -----
We believe that any privately run school should have the right to discriminate based on faith but we believe that in a fair and free society, religion or lack of religion should not be used by the state to discriminate against individuals, especially children.
You can't sign this petition because it is now closed. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!
