:: what's all the fuss about?|the issues in brief
BREAKING NEWS 31 July 2014
Tonight the Minister for Education Hon. Martin Dixon announced on 774 ABC that he has directed his Department to withdraw the elements of the Policy that are the subject of the Complaint.
This is a positive first step in resolving this issue. We await an announcement on Clause 9 of the Ministerial Direction relating to distributing or displaying religious material.
Your emails to MPís and the Minister for Education have been crucial in getting the message through to the Government.
Please continue to pray that the Government would uphold religious freedom for students in the coming days as the details are resolved.
It is our expectation that the Government will abide by its obligations under the Victorian Charter of Human Rights
