It might come as a surprise to most Australians that our religious education system is not only out-moded but is doing damage to students, families and teachers.

Special Religious Instruction (SRI) is a flawed model of segregated and unprofessional religious education, catering to the interests of religious organisations.

Under the system as it stands, state government schools must allow non-teacher volunteers from religious organisations into classrooms to instruct students on a weekly basis. Meanwhile, valuable class time is disrupted and students who do not participate are often stopped from completing any meaningful learning.

8O I hope that this is outlawed soon. Random outsiders shouldn't be allowed to proselytize to children in public school.
