Free, compulsory, and secular
The public schools of Australia are currently being subjected to an unprecedented and unacceptable level of unauthorised religious activity during school hours. Many such programs and activities are being arranged and organised by chaplains employed via the now uncontrolled Commonwealth funded National School Chaplaincy Program. Beyond this, any legal and human rights protections within anachronistic, flawed state and territory legislation pertaining to lay volunteer presented religious instruction during public school hours are more often than not being flouted or ignored.
Emerging as a not-for-profit entity in early December 2015, Secular Public Education™ will inform and educate parents and guardians of Australian state/public school students regarding their statutory and human rights in relation to legislated religious instruction, non-legislated chaplaincy and various other covert religious activities within their schools. When requested, we will directly and discreetly advocate on behalf of individual parents and guardians on a case-by-case basis.
Meanwhile, please feel free to contact us regarding any concerns related to the matters described above. You will receive a prompt response. For regular information and news updates, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
