Peter Collier, Colin Barnett: Ban schools rejecting kids based on homophobia!
This petition had 22,482 supporters
It’s disgusting - a seven year old girl has been rejected by her WA school because her dad is gay.
The Principal of Foundation Christian College told the dad that if they knew he was gay at the interview, his kid would never have got into the school. Outright homophobia in 2015.
The school gets millions of taxpayer dollars and they’re allowed to exclude kids based on whether their parents are gay?
Unbelievably, this discrimination is legal in WA! Equal opportunity legislation bans schools discriminating on the basis of sexuality - but there’s an exception for religious schools.
Peter Collier, Colin Barnett: you need to close this loophole immediately! Ban ALL schools from rejecting a child based on homophobia.
