Encouraging religion to "beget" off!

Keep Religion out of New Zealand Schools

Recently Peter Harrison created a new Facebook group called Keep Religion out of School (NZ). This push is long overdue.

Far better than allowing christian religious indoctrination as is the case now, it would be preferable to have an primary ethics course, as is run in New South Wales. Take a look at their curriculum – it’s very well designed to engage students. Topics include Fairness; Lying and Telling the Truth; Children’s Rights; and Thinking about Animals. In Australia, this course has proven to be very popular.

The time has come for some push-back, to get change happening to New Zealand school RI. To support the effort I created a list of 10 Easy Things You Can Do To Keep Religion Out Of NZ Schools. As usual, when printing, print double-sided and if your printer can do it for you set it to flip on the short edge. Then fold in the traditional way.

It is relatively easy to get up to speed on this topic. For more information see the following:
