Controversial Canadian "Equity" Policy May Force 4,000 Families Out of Toronto Schools

 

Patrick Craine at LifeSiteNews draws attention to the fall-out among Catholic schools in the Toronto area as new government policies begin to be implemented:

The Coptic Orthodox Churches in Toronto are threatening to withdraw 4,000 families from the Toronto Catholic District School Board if it does not amend its controversial equity policy to protect Catholic teaching in the schools. According to one expert in Ontario education, if the threat were carried out, the board could lose upwards of $40,000,000 in annual public funding, and over 150 teachers.

... The equity policy, passed earlier this year as part of the Ontario government’s sweeping equity and inclusive education strategy, has sparked an unprecedented mobilization of parents who fear that it will give homosexual activists a foothold in order to further subvert already weak Catholic sexual teaching in the schools.

    Just read the blog over at LifeSite News. I feel for the Catholics and what they are going though. This is good reading for my fellow NOM supporters. The next time the homosexual claims that SSM will have no effect on your family this blog proves otherwise.
    It was bad enough that the homosexuals infiltrated the public schools but now the greedy gays got their eyes on the parochial schools as well.
