Barring religious ethos from RSE classes

The Oireachtas Education Committee has published a report on Relationships and Sexuality Education recommending big changes to how it is taught. One recommendation is that religious ethos be barred from exercising any influence over the teaching of RSE, even in religious schools. David Quinn discussed the matter with Dr Ciara Kelly on Newstalk this week and stressed that above all the wishes of parents must be listened to in the debate and that it would be wrong to override parents who want their children taught RSE from with a religious perspective.

A podcast of the discussion is here.
