How to discriminate in Queensland

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • anti-discrimination act allows for discrimination (s24). Public is not aware of this. There are no brochures available from www.adcq.qld.gov.au. Is this misinformation or disinformation?
    (How about: You cannot discriminate but we can. Best Regards, Anna Bligh)
    Education system has discriminated curriculums, so kids grow with different versions of history and of "how the world works".
    from "freedom of religion", they jump to "ëducation". How is this done legally? (Incorporation under an act repelled in 1072?)
    There is no employment test case in Queensland for teachers in religious schools. Only Wash v St. Vincent de Paul. Any unemployed teachers out there with a bit of free time?

    Once we get the extent to which the education system has been hijacked, how do we get it back?

    Hi Luis. As a teacher, I am aware of this law. Every state and territory in Australia has similar laws in place (we were taught this fact in teachers' college!). I just assumed that it was common knowledge. Sadly, the law allows for discrimination regarding employment by private schools on a range of criteria, such as religious beliefs, sex. sexuality, apparel, private life, etc.). Ironically, certain regions of the US are more progressive than Australia on this issue.

    I mean an atheist teacher asks for a job in cattletick school, gets rejected and sues.

    I think this is a reference to the s 41 exception of the Anti-discrimination Act Qld?? So a school started for religious purposes can refuse to employ a teacher if they're not of the same faith. If so then yes, I heartily agree it is BS of seriously significant magnitude and I've seen it in action in a majorly ridiculous way.
