Australian government gives more millions to Exclusive Brethren cult for small schools that indoctrinate children

A TINY school campus in Bendigo run by the controversial Exclusive Brethren religious sect is receiving $1.2 million in federal funding to upgrade its library, despite having just 11 primary students last year.

Documents also show that the Exclusive Brethren-run Glenvale School's Swan Hill campus - which has just 16 primary students - received $800,000 for a hall under the schools building program.


Fair suck of the sav, pollies. Why are these people getting money thrown at them? What about public, equal schooling in a democratic country. That money could have gotten class sizes down in a disadvantaged school or put some properly trained student councilors into schools instead of unqualified fundamentalist christians.
