Religion not wanted in Schools


Canadian News View:

It seems that this is the way the Toronto School Board is moving forward and it is a shame.  To look at it from a business point of view, they just lost revenue as there is little religious groups that have accounts full of money which they do not know how to spend it.  These groups, no matter Christian, Muslim, Hindu or others rely on donations from their parishioners and others to provide funding so that the congregation can survive and promote their message.

 

It is disappointing the way government bodies are now turning on groups such as this but it is an easy target.  What does this accomplish?  They were charging different amounts but let us take $900.00/month.  There are 100′s of schools within this school board and if we take 10% at offering the rent to organizations then we can speculate that there is 100 schools charging this each month.  This would total to $90,000.00/month.  Over 12 months this adds to $1,080,000.00 each year.  So instead of bringing in over $1,000,000.00 each year they are bringing in nothing or much less than that.  I guess they will actually need to look at a better way to cut back.  Let suggest cutting the bureaucracy because at least 50% of the budget should be going to maintain a safe environment for the students and keeping student materials up to date and supplies plentiful.  They really need to take a hard look at this to start moving in the right direction.

 

To add to this the non-profits have been grouped into different categories and the religious organizations have been removed as one that receives subsidizes.  I guess they are just too rich.  One can argue they are richer than the Ontario government but are we not all better than them.  I doubt the religious groups are in any position to absorb this.

 

Good job everyone.  And these people are the ones responsible for our children’s future?  How can we blame them when the philosophy is nobody fails.  This is why I use private school and work 2 jobs for it.

Toronto churches may no longer be able to afford to hold congregations and events in public schools now that they are no longer listed as a charitable group by the Toronto District School Board.

Julian Freeman, a pastor at Grace Fellowship Church, will be one of many feeling the crunch. His small congregation of 70 people uses two kindergarten rooms and a small gymnasium every Sunday. Before the increase, the church was paying $990 a month for use of the facilities. The new rate is $4,100, a cost that is not feasible for Mr. Freeman.

“At this point, it’s not an option for us to stay,” he said. “Over the next few weeks, we will look for a new place to meet while we petition the school board. At this point, we’re just eating up our bank account.”

Religious groups had previously been categorized as a subsidized group…
