To paraphrase a letter to the editor in todays SMH: why not ban all religious schools.

Unless it can be demonstrated that religious schools are deleterious by virtue of their being religious, it is difficult to justify such a policy. I do think that religious schools should be subject to the same regulations (e.g.regarding discrimination) and required to meet the same academic standards as non-religious schools.
