  1. With all due respect, I disagree with Peter Clark of Powell, not even partly but completely!
    It is not the education system that is failing here, it is the fact that the religion of the school is regarded more important then the skills of the teacher!
    There simply shows the arrogance, the hypocrisy, the bigotry, the backwardness the total and complete stupidity of the school!

    It is not the education system that allows religious schools to treat people, both teachers and students, as third class people when they are involved in and with same-sex topics, it is the social system that allows religious schools to treat people as third class people!

    The same social system that allows schools to intrude into people’s privacy on matters that have nothing to with their skills to teach and educate students and pupils!

    And besides, what does a religious school add to the education of students other then religious indoctrination, false science and lies about the origin of species?
    In fact, every teacher should refuse to work at religious institutions referring to themselves as schools, places were young people are prepared to live in a society were social abilities are needed to exist, simply because religious schools add nothing to a curriculum!
    All a religious school adds is bigotry, anti-social behavior and exclusion of people who are not aprt of the doctrine the religious school follows!

    Just my opinion!
