Public schools do not need Christian chaplains (Nov 09)

As NSW finally introduces ethics classes as an alternative to scripture classes in public schools, the federal government is headed in the opposite direction.

Kevin Rudd announced last week another $42 million, on top of the initial $165 million, for the national school chaplaincy program that employs religious operatives to work in public schools.


How could this 200 million have been better spent? Almost anything, in my opinion.
We are given the impression that christians are doing this out of the goodness of their god but, as it turns out, they're doing it for $200 million. Surely we could get hold of a few professional, trained councilors instead of half witted evangelical preachers for this much money.
