no role of religion should play any part in education unless it is mandatory by parents in „private schools“ or chosen courses in the Highschool programs.

I think it is up to the parents, until the child is of appropriate age to decide their own religious beliefs.

 @9KMDY5Xfrom Alberta disagreed…3mos3MO

Regardless of the parents religious beliefs, the children should not be taught religion of any sort in school

 @9KCF6ZPfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

I don't think religion should play any role in education. Children are there to learn and if religion was a thing at schools it may be pushed on them in a bad way. They can talk about it at home with family members, but I think school should just be for learning.

Religion is apart of our culture and history, it’s good to learn about and understand how it played a role in many different societies. It’s important to learn the pros and cons it has brought to people. I went to a catholic school my whole life. I’m not catholic, they would make you participate but never felt like I had to join or anything. It was a better education system than the public one that’s for sure.

 @9KDMSH3from Ontario answered…3mos3MO

It should be taught in all schools as a cultural awareness topic. Teach ABOUT all forms of religion but do not push religion or religious practices onto students.

 @9KLYMQNfrom Ontario agreed…3mos3MO

I don't think it should be a huge discussion topic, but as someone who doesn't really follow religion, I feel like people should learn a bit about it at some point.

 @9KDLKJJfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Education should incorporate good Christian values. It instills morals at a young age and teaches what is right and wrong. Canada was founded on Christianity and children should know that.

 @9KLW5CWfrom Alberta disagreed…3mos3MO

Canada was founded on blood and tricky ethical grounds. It is not our right to establish one religion over any others, only communal ethics.

I think religion should be talked about a lot more as god is good and it's important to spread the gospel.

 @9KCM5KZfrom Alberta answered…3mos3MO

It shouldn’t play a part in education, because if you want to be religious you can go to church.

 @9HGV2CSfrom Ontario answered…6mos6MO

I don't think religion should play a strict role in education as Canada is a multifaith country and limiting people to one religion and forcing its teaching could consider it as assimilation.

 @9KQMKNXfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

religion should be something parents teach and pass down thru generations. If a family decides to be athiest, that's their choice. if a child brought up in a religious household decides to be athirst, that's their choice too. if an athirst child turns religious, that's their choice. should be separate from education.

 @9KDLPWHfrom Saskatchewan answered…3mos3MO

The role of religion in education is a complex and debated topic. Religion can provide valuable moral and ethical frameworks, historical context, and cultural understanding, which can enhance a well-rounded education.

 @9KQVQQFfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Religion was here before I was born; therefore, people should be educated about it. But they should not be driven to rivalries based on past events.

 @9KPBQ8Zfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Religion should have nothing to do with education. Any one has the right to learn regardless of their belief

 @9KNZB9Pfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

To impart and establish vital values in individuals and youth in order to promote a safer and more productive society.

 @9KGWSV2from New Brunswick answered…3mos3MO

I believe all religions and philosophy should be taught in schools as a “liberal school” model. The idea being that if everyone understands the details of each other's beliefs and history and they understand various philosophical perspective and theories that they would become intelligent, knowledgeable and competent voting citizens.

 @9KK2GFDfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Religion can play a part in education as it teaches morality, lessons, critical thinking, religion history and many more. I think it should be considered a course or subject because of these reasons.

Not much! Children should be able to choose their own path with little direction from teachers or others that are not part of their family .

 @9KQCS2Zfrom Nova Scotia answered…3mos3MO

Absolutely NO ROLE. Religion has no place in publicly funded education institutions. Religious involvement in education is archaic at least and fosters fear and hatred. Look at the divides and hatred in our world rooted in corrupt egomaniacs using fear based religion to foster hate. Religion or I prefer spirituality should be part of a human mental health component where the education system explores different pathways not holy rollers or staunch Catholicism which is fear based and all about power over people especially women.

 @9KPY9VTLiberalfrom British Columbia answered…3mos3MO

I don’t think religion should be apart of education at all, it’s off topic and distracting. religion is something that happens in someone’s personal life it shouldn’t be public nor forced in schools since there are variety’s of different religions.

 @9KNX3BBfrom Alberta answered…3mos3MO

Religion should be separate from general education. Science is science, and religion is religion. The two can coexist, but our scientific advancement should still be taught and explored in full, including topics some religions may not entirely agree with.

 @9KMKMXLfrom British Columbia answered…3mos3MO

I think that children should be taught about multiple religions from a subjective perspective by people from multiple religions in school but not forced or coerced into any sort of religious ceremony (church, baptism, etc.) unless they want to

 @9KM2MJ6from Alberta answered…3mos3MO

Religion should be free and not forced. While religion has positive aspects such as lessons about moral values and encouraging king actions, it should not determine education as there is no difference in brainwashing if it is forced upon the students.

 @9KLY56Y from Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Religion should not be involved in children's education at all. There shouldn't be any religious school boards or private schools, as this can cloud children's judgement on what religion they want to follow. It should be their choice, and children have no choice in where they go to school, it's their parent's decision. Christian schools go against basic rights in Canada. Everyone should be able to choose their religion, and children can be easily indoctrinated to follow their schools religion.

 @9KJZR4Rfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

I think that religion should be teached in schools, so that the students can have interest on serving god or get to know god more. By teaching religion students may or may not learn good manners and right conducts.

 @9KDM5FHGreenfrom Alberta answered…3mos3MO

Non. No religion should be pushed onto any person just because you feel like it.

There’s nothing wrong with being religious just be mindful that other people might not agree with your beliefs.

Informational only - But discuss a range of education, not just catholicism.

 @9KQNB3Kfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Education should teach world religions but religion should not be imposed on anyone. It should only be taught and not imposed.

 @9KLN3RGfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

If it's a religious school (Catholic schools, christian schools, etc.) The religion should be implied in classes.

 @9KKC3F6from Ontario answered…3mos3MO

no I didn't think religion should play into education everyone should learn the same things and religion should be a class that they could take after school

 @9KJZH2Xfrom Ontario answered…3mos3MO

Religion isn't very important in education because kids can get their educations and then they can decide what religion they want to believe in once they grow up.

Limited, religion should have no place in controlling what is taught in schools, but should be allowed to be taught as a subject to promote understanding between faiths or lack there of.
