Australian state bans external religious organisations from running prayer groups in schools

Australian state bans external religious organisations from running prayer groups in schools

News | Thu, 07 Aug 2014

The Education Department of Victoria has issued a directive clarifying rules on the Australian state's requirements on secular education which could limit the activities of outside religious groups.

Rich enough? Do church schools really need government money?

Religious organisations are classified as 'charities' in Australia, whether they engage in charitable works or not. This means they are automatically tax-exempt, in both their religious and commercial activities. Is it possible that the revenue of the tax-exempt churches that stand behind religiously based schools, together with the revenue of these tax-exempt schools, is more than enough to fund them?
