[RE: Opposed to taxpayers funding religious schools, July 19, Langley Advance Times online]
Robert T. Rock’s bigoted missive is based more on his religious enmity than economic facts.
If all the students were moved to public schools, it would cost the province millions more not including capital costs to build more schools that would be required.
Private school parents, as well as paying full school taxes for public schools their children don’t attend, they still pay thousands for tuition for private schools.
I take issue with private schools all being “elite.”
Many parents struggle and sacrifice to pay this tuition.
Mr. Rock might bone up on Freedom of Religion in Canada is protected by the Canadian Charter of Human Rights and the Human Rights Act before stating bigotry, which is extremely unattractive.
