    • Good on you, primary school principals and teachers. You have recognised correctly what a waste of time having that sort of religious education in your schools has been.

      • A response to another article in today’s comments section --
        Perhaps Amanda Vanstone should contemplate a deeper idea. If the poor women of the third world were to be educated, they would produce fewer children, they would use their newfound wealth of knowledge and resultant employment for the benefit of everybody in their society. Eventually as these countries manage to raise the standard of living, they will no longer be a source of cheap labour for multinational companies.

        • A compelling article in the comment section that everybody should read although not mentioned by Angus, is ‘Why are teachers left on the second tier’ by Ann Rennie, a highly educated high school teacher. Her report and conclusions are correct in every aspect and should lead to urgent community discussion.

          • The United Nations tells us that 200 species are made extinct annually. Why are millions and zillions of dollars being spent to help only the Orangatangs? The WWF is owned by the same people as SHELL. Plz do a story on this.
