PM in protection move for gay students
PRIME Minister Scott Morrison will move to change discrimination laws to ensure gay students cannot be rejected by religious schools.
Mr Morrison said the new legal protections would prevent any non-state school from expelling gay students.
“This week there have been numerous misrepresentations of proposals by the Ruddock Review in relation to laws regarding discrimination against children attending religious schools,” he said. “Contrary to what has been reported, the Ruddock Review proposes to strengthen the protections for students from discrimination.
“This misreporting has created unnecessary confusion.”
Mr Morrison said he would work with Labor Leader Bill Shorten to introduce the legislation in the next two weeks.
