Re: Parents have no rights, according to HWDSB by Mark Cripps, Feb. 11

I would like to personally thank Mark Cripps for his balanced opinion of the HWDSB’s treatment of faith groups who have expressed concerns about portions of the equity policy that the board is determined to implement.   

Removing a parent’s right to determine the values and beliefs they want their children to adopt is a direct insult on our freedom. Unfortunately, if the HWDSB continues to insist on this coercive approach to educating our children, it will no longer be able to call itself an institution for public education.  Rather, it will become The Institute for the Furtherance of Secular Humanism.  Many families will be forced to find alternative ways to educate their children, while preserving the values that define who we are as people.
