Keeping all religions and ideologies out of public schools!

This petition had 91 supporters

Religion should not be allowed to be taught in public schools because more controversy would be present if religion were part of the public school system. Education can be many things, but most basically it is either a tool to combat ignorance and develop critical thinking, or a tool of propaganda and indoctrination. To combat ignorance, the wishes of extremists (religious, political or propaganda, racist) must be given no place in the Canadian public education system. The matter of our nation's future cannot be left to "balance" precariously on the whims or wishes of those who have a well-funded lobbying group or connections in province education departments. Education is an opportunity to advance in society. Schools ought not to be seen as a place to enlist our children in servitude to the ideologies or any religion!
