A formal complaint made to the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission has stimulated debate about the teaching of religion in Victorian state primary schools.For those unfamiliar on the subject, and even for those who are, I definitely recommend reading this article to brush up to where we currently are on the issue.
Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case.
