And evidence for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board's abject failure to uphold parental rights.
This is an excellent letter. I want to confirm that it is all true (I am sure it is, but need to check) and then, this may have to be presented at a delegation to the board. This cant stand unanswered by the OCDSB. I will make sure of that.
The irony of Muslim parents having to send their children to a Catholic school to have thier cultural and religious views as parents respected...
My God, where is the conservative government of Ontario minister of education on this? Can you imagine what things would be like if an ndp or liberal government gets in?
Nice job. Lawsuits will be the only thing that stops this from happening. Parents have to put their money where their mouth is.
Unfortunately this indoctrination is also happening in Catholic schools in Ontario.
Excellent letter if only 50% of parents removed their children from these schools that would ultimately lead to 50% of teachers loosing their overpaid jobs. Homeschooling is the obvious answer for those that can arrange and afford it.
Unfortunately this trend will continue, I would like to see what the majority of tax payers with out children and or Grandchildren have their tax dollars go to for school boards
Powerful! Just confirms all their platitudes about "inclusivity" and "tolerance" and "listening to minorities" are just that, and fall apart as soon as they encounter a "minority" who disagrees with them. It's all about power.
This is indoctrination by woke commissars. That principal needs to be fired.
A wise parent - What happens when we let others do what God has placed in our hands? We know what happens. This battle for the hearts and minds of our children has been going on for several generations now and we have lost much. Young people have abandoned the church in droves. Today, in many many churches we can look out over the people in the pews and gaze upon a field of grey. read more at: https://scrapbookwithtony.wordpress.com/2015/04/19/our-children-our-future/
A very well written letter demonstrating considerable restraint and diplomacy completely undeserving for such an imbecilic, self centered, egotistical sycophant who personifies intolerance. Tragically, in many cases, this is the type of individual, who craves control and authority, advances up the ranks with the blessing of an indifferent Board and administration. Perhaps once the Ministry of Education awakens from its coma, parents in Ottawa might anticipate some relief, but realistically, I wouldn't hold my breath.
" Intolerance is the most socially acceptable form of egotism, for it permits us to assume superiority without personal boasting.

Excellent letter. Clearly many public schools have mutated into left wing indoctrination centres. I wonder if many parents are aware of the specifics that their children are being taught at these centres.
This letter is a the best example of why Canadians need to embrace Charter Schools.
The public school system monopoly cows parents into grumbling and stumbling in compliance but the yard sticks are ever changing. Now the School Boards openly despise parental oversight and are doing an end run by deliberately marginalizing parents and refusing to bring them into the discussion over sex and gender. The conceit of such logic is galling and it is running downhill from the Board through Superintendents all the way down to classroom instructors.
The only way forward is choice. When parents vote with their feet and have the ability to opt out of such authoritarian nonsense then maybe the Government will get in the game and enforce new ground rules for respecting the inherent rights of parents to oversee their children’s education.
Just until when the “conservative?” ministry of ed. is gonna stay silent on this ?!
