The Issues - The right to choose


Schools are never neutral. They are immersed in the ideas, beliefs, attitudes and values of those who write curriculum and policy and those who lead and teach in schools - all schools.

Our international covenants include a commitment to allow parents the right to choose the schools their children attend.

Neither governments nor societies have the right to demand that children attend specific schools, though they have a responsibility to require that children attend school.

Christian schools have a commitment to teach from the perspective of a worldview in which knowledge and understanding are embedded in a belief in God who is the source of all meaning and purpose in life.

We believe that parents must be able to choose the school they prefer for their child.

We believe that governments must make choice possible by continuing to fund non-government schools.
