Rights for gay pupils

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - NEWS -

Aus­tralia’s prime min­is­ter has promised to ban re­li­gious schools from dis­crim­i­nat­ing against gay stu­dents.

Scott Mor­ri­son said new leg­is­la­tion would “make it clear that no stu­dent of a non-state school should be ex­pelled on the ba­sis of their sex­u­al­ity”.

Some Aus­tralian states al­low such schools to turn away gay stu­dents.

The is­sue has been hotly de­bated af­ter rec­om­men­da­tions of a re­port on re­li­gious free­dom were leaked last week.
