Abolish the Federal Government's School Chaplains Program

The Federal Government Chaplains in Schools Programs is about ensuring that parents have no option but to have their children exposed to religious instruction and influence, even when they send them to public schools.

The National Schools Chaplaincy should be replaced with a single non-religious program supporting only qualified counsellors, mental health professionals and student welfare officers in schools that will support all students including GLBTI students without fear of religious judgements.

Commenced by the Howard Government, and continued by Labor and Liberal alike, it is time this be stopped and the funds redirected to support students in a supportive and secular system.
