Comment on School Chaplains in Canberra Schools

Australian Greens

Disappointed, but unsurprised.

Today a Canberra Liberals dominated Committee report pushed for school chaplains to be mandated in Canberra schools, as part of a Legislative Assembly Committee.

School chaplains were banned in the ACT from the end of last year – a move that we Greens support wholeheartedly.

Why? It’s simple. Because religious instruction shouldn’t be forced into our secular schools just because of conservative Federal Governments.
