TCDSB and Cardinal headed for another clash

TORONTO – A survey on gender and sexual orientation will be conducted among grade 9 school children at all Catholic schools in Toronto. This is what was proposed during the last meeting of the board. The Archdiocese did not like the proposal and ruled against it. Criticisms were also drawn from Teresa Pierre of the ” Parents as First Educators ” association. “While collecting student data can provide useful information, caution is needed on how this collection is carried out. Catholic schools must refrain from asking children about their sexual identity and orientation.  This is a practice that could confuse children; it raises privacy issues and concerns about parental involvement ”.

In the next edition of Corriere Canadese, we will publish a complete report on the matter.

Acik konusmak gerekirse Bunun tek nedeni sadece bu kisilerin senin cocukalrini yetistirmek istedigin sosyal yapiya karsi bir antilpatileri olmasidir.

FILIPINO-CANADIAN ON (TCDSB) TORONTO CATHOLIC SCHOOL BOARD.

Once, during a religious seminar I participated in, the issue of Filipino parents sending their children came into focus. I admit, having been involved in the media for most of my Canadian life, this issue never came up in my front burner. I have always regarded it as a given in the Filipino immigrants’ life to send their child or children to a Catholic school. And I assumed that Canadians knew the Catholic background of the Philippines. (more…)

FILIPINO-CANADIAN ON (TCDSB) TORONTO CATHOLIC SCHOOL BOARD.

Isang besses mayroon akong nasalihan na pagpupulong na ang paksa ay tungkol sa mga magulang nang mga “Filipino-Canadian” sa kaugalian na pagpapadala nila sa kanilang mga anak sa paaralan nang pang Katolico.
