That is quite bizarre as there is there is usually no love lost between the wee frees and the papists


A bunch of old fogies imposing their antiquated views on the lives of future generations is not acceptable.


Religion has no place in education. If parents want to indoctrinate their children with a cult they do it on their own dime and in their own time. I bet the materials cost a packet to buy. For someone to say they believe teachers will provide a comprehensive education as it is only an opinion forgets the fact that in those small communities the teacher is part of the cult and will do what the cult says. They should not be able to make changes to the Education Department curriculum.
