NSW has recently begun a trial of Ethics classes in 10 NSW public schools as an alternative for students who do not participate in special religious education (aka SRE or Scripture).  Up to 80% in some schools.

All MP’s have been inundated with emails against this proposal (over 2000 in the last month). These emails are being generated by the Australian Christian Lobby via the Save Our Scripture Website. They have also launched a petition against the trial.

For all the information on the trial, please see Ethics class trial at the St James Ethics Centre website. The St James Ethics Centre has no political or religious affiliations, for more detail, see their website.
