Parents anxious over school choice

Children from atheist families are generally welcome at most religious schools, provided they participate in the religious aspects of school life, some education officials say. White says that while preference is still given to Catholic families, about one in five students at Sydney Catholic schools comes from other faith backgrounds or is not religious. The 17 schools administered by the Sydney Anglican Schools Corporation have an open enrolments policy.

But like Catholic schools, all students are expected to participate in religious activities, such as chapel. Emanuel principal Anne Hastings says the school embraces all streams and customs of Judaism and offers places to students of other denominations as part of its commitment to egalitarianism and pluralism. Students are expected to enrol in Jewish studies until the end of year 11 and take part in some mandatory cultural activities, Hastings says.

White says parents who choose to enrol their children at Catholic-run schools should expect Catholicism to play a role in other areas of the curriculum, such as sex education or in teaching principles of social justice. Sydney mother-of-two Jenny not her real name says she does not regret sending her two children to Catholic high schools. She was particularly pleased with the strong emphasis on social justice at her son's Marist school. Proctor says the emphasis on social justice or charity is a positive cited by many parents who choose religious schools.

The conclusion is that on present policies Australia will have a Chinese minority dominating the economy. Does it matter? Conrad — I do have data of variable quality going back to the midth century, though I have not yet entered every year into a spreadsheet. It seems government schools reached a post-WW2 peak in the mids, which is interesting as it suggests that the first decade of recurrent grants did not have a huge effect, though I would want to go back and examine the funding and enrolment data more carefully.

This could be the very high birthrates of the early s working their way through primary school, where government schools do better than they do for secondary school. As I noted in another recent post , the shift to private schools was only slightly faster under Howard than it had been under Hawke and Keating.

Edward — I have not read the book you mention, though I recall the Michael Duffy article. I very much doubt that Chinese Australians have the numbers to dominate the economy, but good luck to them.

First, this seems rather unlikely given the rather small percentage of the population the Chinese are versus the millions of Anglos, and the fact the Chinese coming now are quite a different variety than, say, those that came in the last decade. The reason the Chinese in places like Chatswood are so rich is because most came from HK with tons of money and a decent education to start with. In addition, if it was true, it would mean that Anglos would have to be so unmotivated and stupid that they would no doubt need to lose their money, houses, businesses etc.

In any case, I have a few more points:. If these guys come with the opposite attitude, then hopefully some will rub off on the average Australian.

On educational biases I have some experience also with another type of measure of educational priorities and that lies in school-level music competitions. It is surprising. Harry — ABS data is expensive, so after some discussion we decided to go for the language question rather than the ancestry question, since social integration was the main point of interest. Maybe if we had gone for ancestry the results would have been different.
