One pub­lic school sys­tem takes away choice

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: It’s time for one school sys­tem (July 13)

Let­ters and com­ments about want­ing to elim­i­nate the Catholic school sys­tem and have only one pub­licly funded school sys­tem come about twice a year. The writer seems to be writ­ing from an eco­nom­i­cal per­spec­tive only. And since I am a Bi­ble be­liev­ing Protes­tant, and there­fore nei­ther a pub­lic nor Catholic school sup­porter, I ad­vo­cate for a Chris­tian School and ad­here to the Bi­b­li­cal in­junc­tion in Deuteron­omy 6 where it says we are to teach our chil­dren about our Lord God all their wak­ing hours. In the Chris­tian School, all sub­jects are taught from a Chris­tian life and world view. (Protes­tant) Chris­tian school sup­port­ers must, by law, pay ed­u­ca­tion tax but may not make use of that money, a se­ri­ous in­equity. One pub­lic school sys­tem takes away your choice and in­fringes on free­dom of religion. Steven El­gersma, Hamilton
