Fury as Albanese told to scrap religious schools rule

Religious schools should lose their unfettered right to dismiss teachers and expel students over questions of sexuality or gender identity, the nation’s law reform commission has found, in an explosive report that calls for action to safeguard human rights.

Equality Australia called it a “blueprint for reform” and cited Thorpe and others in support of its argument, while the Public Interest Advocacy Centre called the report a “clear pathway” to halting some of the discrimination against people because of their sexual orientation and gender identity.
