Ethics class will have to find its own teachers

The ethics class trial has taken an interesting turn with media announcements this week revealing that, “The long-term viability of ethics classes in NSW schools is at risk following a departmental ruling that prevents full-time teachers taking the classes … This ruling would bring the ethics classes into line with the rules governing teacher involvement in scripture classes. It would also place the burden on parents or other groups supporting the ethics classes to finance the teaching of them statewide.”
