Discrimination & faith based schools
A Senate inquiry looking into the the issue of whether faith-based schools should be allowed to discriminate against students, teachers and staff is due to report on Monday.
It’s examining whether exemptions which allow religious schools the right expel same sex students and dismiss gay teachers should stay in place.
The Prime Minister Scott Morrison has promised amendments to discrimination law to make clear no student at religious school should be expelled on the basis of their sexuality.
