Qld Education bible lessons and intelligent design

Let's Get 'Secular' Back in the Queensland Education Act (from whence it was deleted in 1910)

Nathan Lee's letter to the education department.

As it has been a concern of mine for a long time now: I'd like to ask is there any reason why we are still allowing religious people into public schools for the purposes of promoting their religion? I would have thought this would have ceased a long time ago.


Find these kids an alternative, for god's sake

But the five-year-old was the only child in her year to be excused from the lesson and so was forced to sit alone outside the classroom while it proceeded. The little girl was so distressed that her mother - let's call her Karen - reluctantly gave permission for her to attend Anglican scripture. But the decision doesn't feel right and she's still not sure that it is. What should she do?


Australian Secular Lobby

Bible lessons (from the 'Good News' Bible) in school hours by Education Queensland staff teachers are built-into the Queensland Education Act with a curriculum covering Year 1 to Year 7. Creationism and 'Intelligent Design' are permitted to be, and are being included in the Queensland State school curriculum at any grade level.

The Fourth 'R'

The High Court Challenge to School Chaplaincy

Mr. Ron Williams expected his children to enjoy a public education in a secular state school.

His family experience, since 2006, has shown that the federally-funded National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP) has intervened, creating a non-secular pro-Christian culture in the state schools his children attended.
