Polling Shows Support For Christian Schools

Recent polling of the Australian public has reaffirmed the extensive backing for Christian schools and their entitlement to uphold their beliefs.

The independent polling, conducted from 1 – 16 March by Compass Polling, demonstrated strong public support for the necessary elements of an authentic Christian school.

Christian school groups have welcomed the results, which build upon previous polling undertaken since 2019.

Christian Schools Australia (CSA), Australian Association of Christian Schools (AACS) and Associated Christian Schools (ACS) are calling on the Albanese Government to categorically reject the recommendations of the recent Australian Law Reform Commission report that would remove the ability to retain the right to employ staff who share the beliefs of the school.

AACS Executive Officer Vanessa Cheng said the results “are a clear reminder of the importance everyday Australians place on a fair go.”

“Parents across Australia are increasingly choosing to send their children to Christian schools.  They understand that it is fair and reasonable for staff share the values and beliefs of the school, after all that’s what they are paying for when they choose our schools.”.
