Scripture classes provide kids with an important opportunity to ask life’s big questions and to learn about their faith.
They’ve been an important part of our education system right back since the 1800s.
Now school scripture classes are coming under unprecedented attack.
The NSW Teachers Federation is using the 2019 New South Wales State Election to campaign for the removal of school scripture.
Their spokesman has said:

Our children cannot afford to miss out on school scripture classes.
In these challenging times and faced with things like cyber-bullying and social media pressures and domestic violence, now more than ever, our kids need to know about the love of God.
That’s why I’m asking for your support today to make a stand for the future of school scripture.
You can show your support for scripture classes by signing this petition and helping to build a movement of people who will defend school scripture.
