← School vouchers and the religious subversion of church-state separation

In Canada you can home-school your children and receive a regular check from the government to do it with. It is mostly used used by the religious to shield their children from a secular education, especially in the early years.

Religious schools are funded also, because they 'take pressure off the school system', and have good results; they have 'good results' because they are free to screen applicants, which puts pressure ON the public system while draining resources from it to promote their superstition.

Neither of these options promote critical thinking nor do they teach the best of what we have learned about reality, about how the universe works and what we know about our place in it, our origins.

It enrages me that my taxes go to help this happen!
